Before reading up on this I had previously used a chi method about 24 hours prior to messaging it. Heating my hands up rubbing them together violently, then holding a hand to the eye concentrating the "chi". Well that didn't work lol! I read up on cherry eye, and before coming to this post I warmed the hands again and rubbed the eye in a large circular motion, and GONE!! I now find these posts and see massage as a cure. I know now, and will pass this on!!
Thanks for the great advice! We came home and our 4 year old beagle had developed cherry eye! I read up on your site and massaged it for maybe a minute and his eye is back to normal!
Massaged with a warm face cloth for about 3 minutes! It worked!!! Thank you soooo very much!!!
My Weiner Dog Dixie had "Cherry Eye" this evening for a the first time. I googled the condition and found your website. I took a soft cloth and warm water & massaged her eye for two minutes...the cherry eye is gone! She is happy and appreciative & I am thrilled we don't have to visit the Vet in the AM (it would have been a $250 visit with the recommendation of a $1000.00 surgery😭🐶🐶🐶
Thank you a thousand times!!
Dixie the happy Dauchund and Barbara the thankful Dog Mom👍👍🐶🐶
Thank you guys from New York. We have just gotten a 9 week old chiweenie. And on Christmas Day she decided she was going to get cherry eye. We use your instructions and within 10 minutes we have pushed it back in. You don't know how much this just saved us. Hopefully it will go away and not come back again.Penelope is her name by the way. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Thank you so much. I tried the gentle massage for my beagle and it works. Can you suggest me what should I do to prevent it coming back??? We did surgery before 2 months and again it was back but I tried your suggestion so her eye is normal now. My beagle female puppy is 6 months old.
This was so easy. My 3-year-old puggle suddenly had a protruding swelling in the corner of her eye, so I Googled "dog swelling corner eye" and arrived at this site. I didn't have eye drops in the house, so I just wet a towel with warm water and held it to her eye for a minute while massaging, and voila! The swelling was gone. Thanks everyone!
WOW! I am new to the site and a new dog owner. Our 4 month old puppy, Lexi, is a border beagle and things have been going relatively well. She has big brown (Disney style) 'puppy dog' eyes that just make one fall in love. While I've noticed that the whites will often be a bit pink or look irritated, I had run across cherry eye pictures while trying to see if this was normal and she did not have this problem - though beagles apparently are proned to this. Well, today she clearly did have this in her right eye but I was fortunate to come across the posting here! About five minutes of massaging mixed between 15 minutes of squirming and it is gone!!! I did not add any drops, put a compress on it, or 'push it back in' but I did the massage almost immediately after noticing it and it had not progressed very far. Thanks to all who posted. This not only provided me with an alternative, but all the postings gave me the courage to try this on my own.
Luis and Joanne from New York. Thank you all for all the feed back that you guys posted on this website about cherry eye. We have a 7 year old female cocker spaniel. About three months ago, we noticed what appeared to be a red ball bulging from her left eye. We freaked out and took her to the vet. We were told that it was Cherry eye and the only way to fix that problem was surgery. The cost of the surgery was very expensive and we were not able to do it at time.
Anyways, We've been saving for the surgery but today we came upon this website and read all of your posts. We decided to give it a try. We could not believe how helpful they were and especially how much we saved.
We started off by massaging the cherry eye directly with her bottom eye lid in circular motion counter clockwise towards the nose, gently pressing down on the cherry eye until you feel it tucked in or back into place. In other words, keep massaging it until you don't feel anything bulging. It didn't take more than 15 minutes. Once you don't feel the cherry eye bulging, stop and take a quick look at it. If you don't see the cherry eye continue massaging it for another mintute and then just hold it down for five to eight minutes. The results are amazing. The eye is going to be irritated so they are going to scratch it or rub it on the floor. We decided to put a cone around our baby, her name is Lady Molly. Her cherry eye was gone in 15 mintutes. Again, thank you all. We are very satisfied with the results.
