Eye warts bulldog
My bulldog has a tiny thing in his eye that looks like a wart.
Can this be treated and how? or should he go for surgery?

You should take him to your vet for examination to determine if it is anything to be concerned about. If it is benign and quite small (and on the eyelid) and not touching the eye or causing an irritation, it may not necessarily need any treatment. If it is causing a problem though, it will need surgery to remove.
