Yesterday morning i woke up to find Brock's right eye had a big red spot poking out next to his eyeball. Was taking him to the vet's anyway for a vaccination and the vet said it was cherry eye and explained what it was. After reading a post by newfsie about massaging the eye we gave it a gentle massage and a few minutes later it had popped back in and so far hasn't reappeared.
Is this a hereditary condition? I've read that it may be caused by a hereditary weakness in the connective tissue surrounding the gland. And yes i know i should have asked the vet but that didn't cross my mind at the time
