Berkley
Good Morning everyone,

I currently have a 1-year-old English Bulldog named Berkley. Currently, she has a corneal ulcer, which has been healing nicely over the last three days with her antibiotic drops and serum drops from her vet. However, I am curious if any of the members here give their EBs daily eye drops to keep their eyes from getting dry eye? She doesn't paw at her eyes, nor do I think she has a dry eye or I believe the vet, hopefully, would have told me. However, I recently noticed (before the corneal ulcer) that she wants to paw at her face in the morning. Although cute, it scares me because I do not want her dewclaws to scratch her eye.

Thanks, everyone!

I am really surprised your vet didn't talk to you or test for dry eye as it is almost guaranteed in bulldogs! Once diagnosed with dry eye it is a lifetime thing. Sometimes OTC is enough, GenTeal for example. My dog at one point was on 12 prescription drops a day. He is now down to about 6! I would highly recommend taking your girl to a veterinary Ophthalmologist. As much as I love my Bully vet and his astounding knowledge of the breed when it comes to the eyes, I go to an eye specialist. It is not something to take chances on. Good luck.

I do have to put in drops pretty much regularly with Sophie. The one that seems to really help is

Optixcare Dog & Cat Eye Lube Plus Lubricating Gel.​


She has had more ulcers than any sweet dog should. It has actually been quite a while since her last one though, and I am sure this stuff is why. It is the only thing we really changed. She has had surgery for entropion, but it only helped so much.

Has this pup been diagnosed for

distichiasis?

No, she goes for regular checkups with an animal opthalmologist and she's had pretty much every test done more than once. She had entropion, had surgery, and he also opened up one of the tubes that he thought was blocked, not allowing tear production. But no doctor we've seen has said she has distichiasis.
