Pet Tip

Cherry eye in dogs – Pet tip 122

Any owner of a dog who has had “cherry eye” will tell you that it is not a pretty sight. Perhaps you have witnessed it yourself and have seen the large red mass bulging out of the inner corner of a dog’s eye, from which the name ‘cherry eye’ originated. While not the most visually appealing condition (for the owners or the afflicted dog), cherry eye is actually a fairly common and benign occurrence in many breeds of dogs.

Though it may appear somewhat like a tumour or even an awfully big bug bite, the ‘cherry’ on your dog’s eye is actually a prolapsed (or popped out) gland. Known by veterinarians as the nictitans gland, this gland is present in the third eyelid of dogs and aids in the production of tears. Unlike humans, many animals possess this third eyelid which closes horizontally across the eye to provide extra protection and moisture.

Zeke loves to be with people....
....especially me, his Mommy.  He likes to play with other dogs, but only one-on-one.  He's not much of a participant at the dog parks.  Zeke has a girlfriend......her name is Shaida, a one year old Golden Retriever.
Zeke loves to swim.  If it's wet, clean or dirty, he's swimming in it!  He can spend all day in the lake on vacation at the cottage.
Zeke is the sweetest, most loving, cuddly dog.....
