My Vet said and he is not the first one who said it - they can live with that all  life and it doesn't really bother them. Especially when he is young the bones and tissues are still growing and  it may just get fixed on it's own.

Another thing he pointed out that the reason for that is a minor inflamation inside the gland and if you can get rid of that the gland shrinks itself and go back in.  He gave us some topical  steroid drops and said to use it for a week or two and see if it shrinks.

I have some other natural antiinflammatory things I am trying and want to see if it helps  before going with steroids.
Does anyone has any experince  with the steroid drops, i am kind of affraid of them, even though he said toppically it shouldn't be a problem.

Any thoughts?

i think it really depends on the dog. there was NO WAY that we could wait for harlow's cherry eye surgery. they bothered her alot. they were weeping and she was constantly pawing them. she was not happy and there was no way i was going to let her live like that. she was 4 months old when they popped and i could not get them to go back in.

you just have to decide whats best for your particular situation.

harlow had the surgeries and it was like nothing had ever happened she recovered that quick, and at dr. butchko's (the kingpin of bully vets in so. cal) the cost was very reasonable and included her follow up and meds.

I totally agree, every situation is different and you have to decide what is best for you and your Bully.  If you see that it's bothering them I think it's best to check with the vet and see if there is  a different problem going besides the cherry eye.

Topical steroids aren't as invasive as oral steroids.  I wouldn't be cautious to use it if she needs it.  I don't like to use steroids if I don't have to either, but sometimes it's a necessary evil.

Shadys back..lol

Yes with Belle this happens all of the time...and I just pop it back in it works for some dogs but not for all..the vet told me as long as its going back in with no resistance then its fine...but like stated by another member the only way to fix it is to get it tacked down and that doesnt always work either..

Mackie had her Cherry eye operation when she was 4 months, but it still pops out from time to time.  Most times I am able to massage it back in but if it's really bad I give her a benadryl - works like a charm.  I hope it never gets out of control again, would hate for her to keep having it redone.

My 13 month bulldog had cherry eye when he was 7 months old and we got it tacked down asap. Just 2 days ago when I woke up I noticed the other eye got the infamous "cherry eye" this is what I did.

 I got a bone and let my bully chew on it with the same side as his cherry eye for about 20-30 minutes. After chewing on the bone I put "Genteal eye lubricant" in his bad eye, then he went to sleep..3 hours later..it was all better. HOPEFULLY he wont get a cherry eye again in this eye but if he does Ill have to goto the Doctor.

So if anybodies bullies wakes up with cherry eye, try to get him to chew on his favorite/new toy on the side of the bad eye and then put the lube and hope for the best..who knows, it might work

I came on here to see if there was any information about cherry eye as one of my puppies April has it, it seem to pop up out of nowhere, she is 5 months old now I phoned my vet he said he will see her tomorrow, but then he waits 1 week to see if she gets it in the other eye, Im going to see if he will remove it early next week, i think I might have a go at doing it myself as the video shows, I am a bit scared though.
I will let you know what I do. :(

penny, harlow's came two weeks apart about the 4.5 month mark. they really bothered her thought. some dont. her's wept, she would rub it on the carpet, etc. so we had them done asap. we also had them tacked opposed to removed. less chance of dry eye that way, fyi. good luck with miss april.

You're not going mad ;D It can happen and is not unheard of. Just know that it may pop out again since it has already. ;)

That's a great video! It is very useful. My friend's dog has cherry eyes. I better recommend this to him.
