      Hey Bianca,

      Thanks for sharing your experience. Have you noticed any other symptoms or spoken to a vet about the white dot?

    The outside of my Frenchies eyes are swollen never experienced this before and she has rashes came out of nowhere need help

      Hi David, thanks for the message. Unfortunately, it’s very hard for us to provide adequate advice without seeing your dog. You should take her to a vet and have them assess the swelling and irritation.

    My frenchies eye was red and my family didnt notice until he started squinting, but it was too late and the vet said he will be blind from there on out. It was only half a day, thats all it took

    My 6 year old frenchie recently had an ulcer on her eye,took her to the vets and thankfully following 3 tubes of eye ointment she is back to said we were lucky to have noticed the ulcer when we did as it might have involved surgery and furtger treatment,or loss of sight
    My frenchie loves playing in the garden and is prone to crashing into shrubs future i will be more careful where she excercises when in the garden,owners need to be aware of these issues,grateful for the advice from Frankie!.

    Our 8 year old Frenchie was just diagnosed with glaucoma in his left eye. Vet says that he is blind with eye. We saw an optomolgist today and they are recommending removal. Is removal really necessary or have you seen pressure go down within the eye over time of drop and ointment are applied? He’s acting normal and eye doesn’t seem to bother him much. Appreciate any feedback.

      Hey Peter,

      Hopefully, the community here can share some stories that will help. Alternatively, you can chat with a vet online here:

      Fingers crossed!

    t’s an inherent trait for animals to hide their pain so that they don’t look weak and become a prey item and our dogs are no different. They probably recommended removal of the eye, because glaucoma often results in pressure building up in the eye, which does cause severe pain. The eye is of no use any longer, so while it may not be pretty, it will alleviate any problems or pain that could arise. I would suggest seeking a second opinion just to be sure.
