Cherry Eyes can also happen to your English Bulldog due to trauma to the eye or head.An example of this would be a puppy run into your leg as you are walking, he is running full blast at you and hits your leg as it is in the upward stroke. We have also seen it occur in adult bulldogs when having an allergic reaction to something inhaled (i.e. fertilizer, or harsh cleaning agent, pollen at certain times of the year). When a cherry eye pops out in an older bulldog, or with trauma, it is more likely to be put back in place, and remain without surgery.
Apply an eye lubricant like Terramycin or Puralube. Stabilize your pets head, close his eye and massage the gland back into place. We also recommend an antihistamine such as benadryl. Massaging the gland may have to be repeated several times a day. If the Cherry eye is due to trauma or an allergy, normally the gland will go back down and not have to be surgically corrected/removed. ALWAYS consult your vet he can show you how to apply the lubricant and can give you a antibiotic lubricant to apply also.
