"Cherry eye," is a common and genetic issue impacting young dogs of certain breeds, including pugs.
Eyelid protrusion: Dogs have a third eyelid and congenital weakness of the gland's attachment in the dogs eye causes the gland to protrude. The prolapsed gland itself rarely causes discomfort or damage to the eye, so the repair is cosmetic.
Here is a home remedy that might work for you.
Calm your dog down first by giving him a massage or a tummy rub so that he is good and relaxed.
Take a warm cloth and gently lay it over his closed eyelid on the affected eye allowing it to warm the area for a few minutes to promote tear production and lubricate the area. Slowly massage the area where the gland has protruded. If the dog has dry eyes or no tear production, use eye drops to help promote a more slippery surface. Remove the damp cloth and gently move your thumb over the eyelid putting almost no pressure on his eye. Massage the center of his closed eye toward the corner of his eye near his nose. Repeat this several times until you feel the third eyelid almost suck back into the correct position.
Have a surgeon correct the issue, securing the glad in the correct location.
The gland is essential for tear production and will cause many long term issues if removed.
Typically it's only removed if the gland has been damaged by being left exposed for to long.
It's important to deal with this issue as soon as possible.
