Description

Cherry eye occurs in cockers, bulldogs, and other "bug eyed" purebred dogs. This swelling of the tear gland can look really bad, but in reality is not critical. You can use Benadryl, aspirin, and a warm compress to help soothe the eye and shrink the swelling. If the swelling does not go down, you should get the eye checked out by a vet. They may prescribe an eye ointment with steroid and antibiotics. Surgery may be needed if the swelling persists.
