Little worried. Looks like my bulldog got into something. Going to the vet tomorrow
Hard to say by this pic but it looks like "Cherry Eye". It is prolapse of the gland of the third eyelid. It is now recommended to tack it back down surgically, although it has been surgically removed for years do to the fact that it may make them more likely for "dry eye". Probably run you between $2-300 for bloodwork/anesthesia/surgery.
I would think that too but notice the red around his mouth
Here's one I just took
Billy my chick is a vet student, I'll send her the pic and let you know tomorrow.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
Thank man. I'm thinking he got into something he's allergic to or maybe got stung by something. Called the vet and they said not to give him any people meds. Hate it for him
Wonder why? You can give him benedryl.
See that's what I thought to do. But my gf said not to (she called the vet). I was hoping there would be some house remedy I could use to help him right now since I can't take him to the vet till tomorrow.
Meh. I know you can give him benedryl. Most dog meds are the same a people meds. But if its allergies it would make him feel better.
You think I should? I'm a worry wart
Alot of painkillers arent. Pretty sure you cant give dogs advil. Vets have recommended benadryl for my dogs in the past though.
Looks like Cherry Eye to me. My bulldog had to have surgery in both eyes due to Cherry eye, very common. Good looking dog, he will be fine but the wallet will take a hit.
The painkillers are still the same medicine though. Ibuprofen for dogs is same as human ibuprofen. Give a dog buffered aspirin for pain though.

Look dudes I just woke him up. His eye is better
Edit: I mean aspirin. You can give your dog buffeted aspirin. Advil can cause stomach problems
My parents have a shi tzu and he gets cherry eye sometimes. The vet told my parents just to rub his eye softly and it will go away. It seems to work
man that one in your avatar is pretty too. well done
im thinking he sniffed something that irritated him or got stung by a bug
its the red on his nose and mouth area that makes me think its not cherry eye
now his eye is bad again after running around some. wtf?
Read this billy.
Billy....trying massaging that eye very softly
It goes away but I can tell its still swollen
Yea, he needs to be checked but that is a way to keep it down
So should I give him anything?
Sorry I've been away. It is possible that it is just an allergic reaction due to a sting bite or contact dermatitis. I would give him benadryl (1mg/pound). I would also wash his head just in case it is a contact dermatitis so that we make sure if we got into something we are allergic to that it is washed off.
It is also still possible that he could have cherry eye as sometimes they will come and go prior to getting them fixed. They often will eventually get a little more inflammed with time and swell to the point that it no longer will come and go.
