    Default Eye cyst - Any Tips

    Hello All,

    We noticed on Friday that Boris had been scratching at his eye a bunch and after closer examination it looks like the poor dude has a Cyst. We had a friend stop by who's a Vet and she recommended applying a heating pad a couple times a day and keeping it dry. If it's not improving we were told to bring him in. The good news is it has gone done quiet a bit since we first noticed it and he's no longer scratching, but I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this and has recommendations for a remedy?

    Vetericyn makes many good products, including one for eyes. I would get some, and put it on the "cyst". That way, if it gets in his eye, it would be okay. They also have different ointments at Walmart/pharmacies that you could apply. I would get something that is specifically for eyes. The Vet didn't seem to concerned. @Enjoimangos

    he's been doing fine. We just keep applying heat and ointment to it for a couple minutes in the morning and at night hoping it'll come to a head and rupture. I just got home today and see it's starting to rupture so we'll keep it clean and hope it clears up after it goes pop. We have a Halloween party tomorrow with the Vet friend and will be bringing him with to get a checkup and pester everyone for food He isn't scratching at it anymore and is back to himself.

    The Vet Friend is not worried about it and tells us they take time. My GF on the other hand is losing her mind and wants to take him to our regular Bulldog Vet.

    Yep, looks like an infected tear gland. Keep doing as you have been and see Vet if it doesn’t continue to improve. Hoping it’s all better within a weeks time.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Thanks! It looks much smaller today. We'll see how it's looking when I get home from work and let you guys know what our Vet friend says tonight.

    Boris is pretty much back to normal now. He still has a little red bump but it gets smaller with each passing day. Thanks for the feedback everyone.
