I'm a believer! My mini doxie came in from outside and in the corner of her eye was a red bulge. I immediately started looking up what it could be. It is known as a 'cherry eye". I read all comments on this site about this and decided to go with using first an eye drop solution-1 drop, then ice in a baggie w/cloth wrapped around it for 5 minutes laid on the bulge and finally gently pushing the bulge towards the corner from which it protruded not on the eyeball. I did this 3 times that day. I could still see a reduced bulge before she went to bed for the night. This morning - nothing - gone. I am so thankful for this site and the results.
I noticed my old 8 week puppy all of a sudden had cherry eye thought he scratched it or got something in it, but looking online I used the method with the warm cloth and massaged his eye while having him laying on his back.Then I put 3 drops of eye drops to the eye and continued to massage. Within 15 minutes his cherry eye was gone. Thank you for the post and how to correct this. Got me very worried about my little guy.He's doing better. Thanks
I just did the ice and massage treatment on an eight week old beagle mix. Used cube of ice for minute or two the massaged for about three minutes n it's gone. Hers was really protruding out.
Thank You so much. My little coton de tulear developed a cherry eye during the night, I took the advice from this site regarding the Ice and massage and I can't believe after half an hour of using the ice and massaging the big bubble has gone!!! x
My chi weenie has cherry eye! It was just red and I looked at her eye and there was a big bubble right under the lid. My son massaged her eye gently for a minute. Nothing. I put on a hot compress for about a minute and gently pushed along her closed eye toward her nose about 3 times. Nothing. I found this site and decided to try ice. (Someone said it took them 3 min). I put ice in a ziplock. I snuggled her and put it on her closed eye for 3 minutes. I pushed on her closed lid toward her nose 3x. I could kind of feel it as I pushed. Third time I couldn't feel it so I just petted her and got her to look up at an angle and it is still red but no bubble! Taking her to the vet tomorrow to see what is going on but happy that we know another option. Yay!
Hello , my name is Tasha, I am a white shitzu cross, I would like to thank you for the advice you have given for cherry eye, I am a little tired of mum messing with it, I don't like going to the doctors and don't need an operation, the eye drops are so soothing, and now I don't run into every thing, with the ointment she was giving me, I nearly zonked out the last time I walked into something hard, well thanks again folks and keep up the good work.
Best wishes from Tasha
I have a 9yr. old shepard / chow mix she has had cherry eye for more then a yr. I could not afford surgery; I just found this, so I decided to give it a try. It worked much to my amazement in just a few minutes, I really could feel it "pop" back in, and she seemed to like it. It has only been a few min. and I expect I will have to do it again, but I have to say WOW! I wish I would have seen this sooner!
I got my Boston Terrier puppy 3 weeks ago. He is just 12 weeks now. He got cherry eyed the day before yesteday and my wife got some iced water with a sterile gause and put it on the puppy's closed eye a couple of times. She then gave the puppy the circular massage and it worked!!!! We got really happy after feeling soooo bad for the puppy. Bostons rock!!!!!!! Thank you all for the help...
I came home from work today to see that my 3 year old puggle had a, what I found out was, a cherry eye. This website seemed to know what it was talking about, but I'm always questioning if the stuff you read on websites actually work. It was too late to take her to the vet, so I got a warm cloth and put it over her eye adding a little pressure for about one minute. Sure enough, it was gone! I was shocked it was that easy! Thank you all so much!
Omg thank you so much for this info. We have a chihuahua and she was getting it. We did the eye drops, ice and then massaged twice last night and when we woke up today it was gone!
Thank you thank you!! It worked I just massaged her eye for about 2 minutes and it was gone. I had to wait till she was sleeping because she is a puppy and wouldn't sit still. Thank you so much!!!
THANK YOU THANK YOU!! I have a 8month old malitzu, I noticed he had cherry eye and right away searched the internet. I used one eye drop, iced and rubbed as directed and it worked! Thank you all so much! Still in shock it worked. took only 3 minutes.
I tried rubbing the eyelid toward the nose but the cherry eye was still there just a little hidden. I had a little idea I put my mouth over her eyelid and ever so gently blew a little air into her eye. I mean I had to do it twice cause the first time I hardly put any air in it. I don't mean a whole mouth full. Anyways, the entire cherry eye is gone. I tried so hard to see if it finally went away. It's all gone, no sign she ever even had it. I think she got it when my little sister put the blow dryer toward my dogs face. I hope you guys try it. I saved alot of money trying this out.
Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU! This morning my 5 month old pup woke up with cherry eye and we all had no idea what it was or why it had happened. I called the vet and they said it sounded like "cherry eye" and that I should come in asap as this condition usually requires surgery to fix. I didn't like that, but I did make an appointment. Tooling around the internet led me to this lovely site. I tried this method with my darling little pup and whammo! Perfect! She's as good as new! Okay, almost as good as new. She's a little red around the inner corner of the eye, but I think that's from her scratching at the cherry. I'm so very, very pleased. Next up, apple cider vinegar for the conjunctivitus (sp?). Thank you all!!!!
Thanks so much for this feedback! About a month ago, I was bathing my Shinese puppy and shampoo got in her eye. The result was a inflammation to her tear duct. I took her to the vet, and she was prescribed eye drops. For several weeks, I saw no improvements and eventually took her back to the vet, where I was told she might need eye surgery in the future.
Yesterday, I stumbled upon this website and followed the instructions, hoping to pop the gland back into place. After applying a warm compress and massaging the area for a little while, the cherry eye disappeared -- only to come back immediately. I repeated the process today, and it worked!! She has been playing with other puppies and going about her normal activities, and her eye is completely back to normal. This is absolutely incredible! Thanks for the advice!
