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.

Czar was a one of a kind dog.  He loved with his whole heart.  He had more exuberance than was good for him, and his whole goal in life was to get you to play with him as much as he could. 


He kept us protected by guarding our home....he warned us when there was an intruder, and yet if you knew him well enough, you would have known all he would do is drown you in kisses.  But the stranger coming in the yard didn't know that...all he saw was a huge white dog growling at him under his breath.  That fluffy white tail was wagging, but the voice said otherwise.


We miss him still, and will always miss him.  He lived hard, and loved hard....as we continue to love him.
