this is a hereditary problem. She should not be bred from.
Speak to a vet about it.

Victor, I’m gonna get in trouble with vets on this, but be sure to speak with your breeder about this. Many of the old time bulldog breeders are adept at fixing most of these themselves, but apply a sterile gauze to the cherry, and working it back into place..If you do a online search, you will even see illustrated sites for this.and the stats about its success, as opposed to surgical correction…So, its worth a try to speak with the breeder, or find other bulldog people in your area that may be able to show you..

There are two types of surgery available for cherry eye. There’s one that willl “tuck” the tear duct back to where it’s supposed to be, and one that will remove the gland altogether. Talk to your vet about both procedures. The opinions vary widely. Some vets believe tucking is the way to go, some believe in removal. The downside to the tuck is that it may not hold, and would have to be repeated. The downside to removal is that your pup will run the risk of dry eye. The cost again will vary from place to place, as will… Read more »

The surgery is a safe and simple procedure. I am not sure of the cost. I do know that if left untreated the dog can scratch the eye (it causes dry eye) and cause corneal abrasions.

It is not dangerous and is a lot cheaper if you have it done at the same time as the spay. That way she is only under anesthesia once. I had two beagle mix puppies that I got both done at the same time and it went really well. I am seeing a lot more cherry eye in younger puppies. I had always known it in older dogs so it must be bad breeding for it to be happening in puppies. If you got her from a breeder I would certainly see about them reimbursing you for the surgery.

The normal canine eye receives its tear film from two lacrimal (tear-producing) glands. One gland is located above the eye and the other is found within the animal’s third eyelid. The gland of the third eyelid contributes a significant portion of secretion to the tear film. In the smaller breeds — especially Boston terriers, Cocker spaniels, bulldogs and beagles — the gland of the third eyelid is not strongly held in place. The gland prolapses out to where the owner notices it as a reddened mass. Out of its normal position, the gland does not circulate blood properly and may… Read more »
