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.

I am a pampered pet at home. My bed is my very own special cubby in Mom and Dad's headboard.  My sisters think that I am the cutest puppy in the world.  When they come home from school they both say hello to me before they say hello to anyone else.  Mommy takes me with her everywhere, and I just love all of the car rides.  My favorite toy is my stuffed cow.  I don't play fetch with her though.  I use my rope bone for that.  My best friend is Star.  She is white like me, but really big.  Mommy says she is an Akbash dog.  I don't know what that is, I just like her because she is so nice to me.  I don't like to take baths, but I do like to be dried with the hair drier after.  I get very fluffy when I am all dry.  I love to meet new people.  I love it so much that I just wiggle.  Mommy likes that I am not a yappy little dog.  I only bark when I am playing chase with my sisters.  I am so quiet that Mom had to hang a little bell on the door for me to ring when I need to go outside.  It works really well. Sometimes I ring the bell just to go outside to play.  All in all, I do get to live the dogs life!
