Hey guys... is this the start of cherry eye with Cooper? We have only had him less than 2 weeks!!! I have never experienced cherry eye with Gunner. What should I do? Does this require a vet visit? Please help! 8890DFD6-D853-4653-90FB-AD24C831796D.jpeg

Yes...try massaging it back in.
This is rather early to be popping out and our MINI has had the same issue beginning at about 12 weeks. We just kept pushing it back in and sure enough it has stopped popping out. It's been 2-3 months since it last popped. She's 2+YO now.

Yes..like mentioned massage it back in. You can view on as there’s lots of YouTube videos. I found when Nyala got excited it would pop out more. She got it tucked in (1 stitch only) when I got her fixed. Do NOT get it fix now. Wait till you get copper fix.

Thank you for responding so quickly. Looks like it popped back in on own. I’m going to continue to watch it and note when it happens.

Yep, cherry eye, but dont panick, it’s common thing. My Tank developed cherry eye at 4 mo, and now he is 3 year old. I never made surgery. I just massage it back when it pops out, that’s all. First observe it for some time, how often it will pop out. Tank has it once a week or so, after crazy play, rolling on the floor etc. It goes back easy, so I’m not taking a risk of a surgery. Good to have eye drops with antibiotics and steroid. I use it from time to time before massaging it back.
Situation becomes urgent if eye doesn’t go back for a day or two.
