Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment while I review your concerns.
I'm so sorry to hear that Fred's eye is bothering him.
Is there any discharge or redness of the eye?
Is he squinting, pawing or rubbing his face?
Are you able to send a photo?
Ok, thank you for that information.
Bulldogs, due to the shape of their face and positioning of their eyes are prone to corneal abrasions (scratches to the surface of their eyes). This is the most common cause of sudden squinting in just one eye. It can only be diagnosed by a stain of the eye by your veterinarian. If the squinting persists for more than 12-24hrs, I recommend having Fred seen by a veterinarian to have his eyes assess. If corneal ulcers are left untreated, they can become quite deep, painful and difficult to treat.
Please let me know if you have any other questions. I am here to answer all the questions you have. If you have no other questions, I would greatly appreciate your positive review (5 stars). Your review helps connect Experts with other customers so your input is highly appreciated, and it is the only way that I am compensated. Thank you!
