Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
The cherry eyes which are an enlargement of the Harders Gland which is a tear gland is causing irritation to Jadas eyes causing this discharge. Th best thing you can do is to apply a few drops of Artificial Tears to Jada's eyes every 4-6 hrs. This is available over the counter at the pharmacy from Bausch and Lomb and will remove all of the irritants and coat her eyes. This will help soothe her eyes and decrease any further damage. It is best if you can to have your vet examine Jada's eyes at some point to know for sure how much damage has been done and how serious this is for Jada.
Does that make sense to you?

I am so sorry but due to my location, I am unable to make phone calls.
You use a kleenex to remove the discharge and then apply the drops. The drps will decrease the amount of discharge within a few days if you are consistent with them.
That is not unusual due to the irritation. Try to apply the drops first and then wipe Jada's eyes...this may soothe it enough so area will not bleed. Your vet can prescribe a steroid ointment that will decrease this inflammation but you would need to take Jada in to your vet for this.
