Bulldog Eye Conditions
The gland that ordinarily is found under the lower eyelid at the inside corner of the eye will sometimes “pop” out. This is not as horrible as it appears to be and does not require emergency treatment. It does require treatment at the earliest possible time by a bulldog veterinarian recommended for Cherry Eye. The quicker the bulldog gets treatment the better the chance for successful treatment without removing the gland. However, removal may be necessary.
KCS or “dry eye” is an eye disease caused by abnormal tear production. A deficiency in the lacrimal glands’ production of tears causes KCS in bulldogs. Normal tears are essential for the health and transparency of the cornea (the surface of the eye). Tears cleanse and lubricate the cornea, carry nutrients, and play a role in the control of infection and in healing. Deficient tear production, as in KCS, causes chronic irritation of the cornea and conjunctiva. Corneal ulcers and eventually corneal scarring occur, and blindness can result. KCS can occur as a result of viral infection, inflammation, drug-related toxicity, or immune-mediated disease. There is an association between removal of a cherry eye and the development of KCS.
Entropion is the inward rolling of the bulldog’s eyelid, most commonly the lower lid. This irritates the surface of the bulldog’s eye (the cornea) and may ultimately cause visual impairment.
Normally the eyelashes grow from follicles in the eyelid. Abnormalities of the eyelash are a common hereditary problem in bulldogs. The three types are:
Distichiasis – extra eyelashes grow from abnormal follicles located on the inside edge of the eyelid. They may be singular or multiple.
Ectopic cilia – an extra eyelash grows through the eyelid to the inside. One or more ectopic cilia may be present.
Trichiasis – eyelashes growing from normal sites turn inward. The eyelashes are often abnormally long. With any of these disorders, the clinical signs relate to irritation of the cornea (the surface of the eye). The degree of discomfort varies greatly, depending on the number of abnormal cilia, and whether they are very fine, or more coarse.
