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.

This is a farewell tribute to our much loved Teddy.  As I was there for his birth, this is the first time we have been parted.  Teddy was an adorable little Ewok who won hearts everywhere he went.  Grown men and teenage boys have all cried to hear the news of his untimely passing.  Shame on the motorist who didn't even stop.  Teddy loved to run with his best friend and father, Bones.  I want to celebrate his life - he was more than just a puppy - he was gentle, generous and a great listener.  He loved to romp on the beach in the summer and bury his face in snow in the winter.  His collection of stuffed animals is impressive and each one caused his face to light up like the first.  Even our cats are mourning Teddy for he protected them also.  Go with God, Teddy.
