Lincoln is having a terrible time with cherry eye and has to go in to another surgery and I'm so sad about it. To make things worse, in his wrinkle below his eye (on the brown side) I can see one patch of pink that looks as though he lost the hair there. What would cause this??? Is it a skin condition??? I just want my boy to be 100% ok.

Poor Linc! One of my foster Boston's had terrible cherry eye! Eye issues suck. I'll be keeping Lincoln in my thoughts that this one fixes his troubles.

As for the pink spot under his eye - that could be almost anything. Skin condition, allergy, who-knows-what. Im no help am I? :lol:

I know this is quite common in bulldogs due to their shallow eye sockets, their eyes tend to dry out. But I was curious, do you happen you use a powder carpet freshner or any powder cleaning products around him? I've heard numerous stories about the powder/cleaning products drying out the dog's eyes and causing this.

Our Diamond Girl had this, but as soon as we noticed a little redness in her eye she went right to the vet. They suggested steroid drops to reduce the swelling and her gland receded back into her lid. We were lucky not to have to put her in for surgery. Maybe you can ask the vet about a steroid drop to control the problem instead of another surgery

sick EB

A word on Cherry eye. The older they get the eyes will get dryer. Try to keep moisture drops handy. It helps in putting moisture in the eyes after they are healed after surgery. I have an EB with dry eye, it's common with EB. Had a cherry eye while young now she needs drops several times a day to keep moisture on the eye or you will be looking at more vet bills on that eye.
