Frenchies are so cute! It’s very hard to see it when they’re not feeling good or have something wrong. As a pet parent who loves their fur baby, you want to do everything possible to make your Frenchie feel better. And that applies when your Frenchie has red eyes.

Does your Frenchie have red eyes? Are you worried your Frenchie’s red eyes may be a serious problem? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We understand it can be scary when your fur baby has something wrong with his eyes.

We’ve put together some information to help if your Frenchie has red eyes and what you can do to help him feel better. Let’s get started!

What Causes Red Eyes in Frenchies?

First, it’s important to understand that French Bulldogs are prone to eye problems. So, if your Frenchie has red eyes, there’s something wrong and it’s necessary to figure out what’s causing the problem.

Here’s a list of the most common eye problems in French Bulldogs:

Your French Bulldog may be digging at his eyes if they’re irritated. This may be caused by itching and irritation caused by the eye condition. With allergies, you may also notice symptoms such as sneezing or coughing. Your dog’s eyes may also produce more tears than normal and look watery.

How to Help Your Frenchie’s Red Eyes

If your Frenchie has red eyes for the first time, it’s usually best to call the vet. When you don’t have enough experience, it can be challenging to determine what’s causing the problem. So, calling the vet is a good idea.

And if your Frenchie has red eyes along with other symptoms, it’s also best to call the vet. It’s usually best not to wait to see if your dog’s symptoms improve or worsen. Some conditions that cause red eyes in Frenchies need to be treated as soon as possible.

Treatment of Red Eyes in Frenchies

Treatment of your Frenchie’s red eyes depends on the vet’s diagnosis. For instance, if your Frenchie has cherry eye, the vet may prescribe eye drops and use a warm, damp cloth to gently massage your dog’s eye. It can take several weeks for cherry eye to heal.

For dogs that have dry eye, the vet may prescribe ointments, antibiotics, and eye drops.

As you can see, the treatment really depends on your dog’s diagnosis. The main takeaway is if your Frenchie has red eyes, it’s best to call the vet, especially if your dog shows other symptoms and/or this is the first time he’s had red eyes.

In most cases, the vet can prescribe treatment that can help your dog feel better and his red eyes clear up!
