I do know some of the old time beaglers do it themselves, ( bleeds profusely BTW)
I don't know if English bulldog's cherry eye could be that much different.
Sounds like a country club vet, I would definately shop around.
You probably don't live near Shelby NC but if you did there are several very good vets there that I use.
Here's a site with some info

I was wondering if any of you guys have had to deal with "Cherry Eye" with your dogs? Our English Bulldog puppy just developed it and we are looking at all the options for her treatment. We have taken her to the vet and he has said that surgery would be around $1000. Any input or advice from someone who has already dealt with this would be greatly appreciated.
Don't have the issue with mine, but it is very common.
Find a vet that loves the breed, and one that isn't trying to bend you over, and the will do it for a couple hundred, at most.
Call every vet, especially the ones that are out in the country, not in town. Their overhead is soooo much lower.

Oh, and run from the vet that said it'd cost $1000. That guy/gal is in it for the wrong reasons and is trying to break one off in you!
