Q. I just got a engish maff and he has cherry eye how can I help it go back in thank you karen

A. Cherry eye' is a very specific condition affecting third eye lid that requires surgery. If you refer to a red and inflamed eye than it could be due to bacterial infection, allergy, trauma etc. You should take your dog to your vets to confirm diagnosis and get necessary treatment which could be surgical (in case of real cherry eye) or eye drops in case of most of inflammatory problems.
