    HRH gets bloodshot eyes. The left more than the right. I notice it more in the mornings. I asked the vet about it when we first got her, and he gave me some drops, they didn't seem to make any difference. She used to get eye boogers but now almost never has them with the change of food to fromm beef fritatta. She doesn't act like it bothers her though, so we haven't really done any more checking.
    If she started fussing or rubbing her face on things then I would think a vet check would be the best bet.

Her eye healed quickly from the stratches and there is no scarring or permanent damage. Her left third eyelid is more red than the other one but I figured that was normal since it did have to be operated on two times within a matter of 3 days. She has been back to the vet since to get fixed and check-ups and the vet hasn't said anything about anything being wrong with her eyes.

    @LisaRN @desertskybulldogs @cadillactaste --It's the bloodshot eyes I was really worried about and when her eyelids do become very red. I didn't know other bulldogs got bloodshot eyes and was afraid something was wrong with my little one. They do seem to get worse as the day goes on and better if she takes a nap.

    That's what is great about Forums...people can share their own experiences...and if they feel it too is a problem. Then you can seek out medical attention. I've had bulldogs for over 20+ yrs...and trust me other peoples experiences can still enlighten me. Had the vet not pointed out Sarge's third eye and it being naturally more red than some. [Though on a good morning that he can sleep in they are actually quite pinkish white verses red] I would never had put that together. And most likely called for an appointment over the redness.

    I looked at the photos and couldn't really see any cherry eye ... although neither of my bullies have had them so I'm probably not the best person to comment on it.

    From your original post I thought you were talking about the pinkness around the eye .... I agree with what a lot of people have said on here that it could just be a sign of tiredness!!!

    Thanks for the clarification @RoxiBear. Stig's eyes get red in the evening too around bedtime and maybe a couple of time during the day. Thats's when we calm down the playing a little and let him rest.
