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 just had a litter of 11 puppies.  They were delivered by cesarean section and then I had a hysterectomy.  I only have 9 nipples, so I have to feed them in 2 groups.  They are 17 days old today.  I will be glad when they are ready to wean.  Boy, do my nipples hurt!
I like to sleep on my mom's new bed, but she won't let me up there now because I'm still bleeding a little.  My favorite food is anything the humans in the house are eating, except potatoes.  I hate potatoes and brocolli. 
I have 2 cats, MeeMow and Sid Vicious.
