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.

Parker is a very lazy, cuddly, cute mini shnauzer who is always willing to please.  He is 4 months old at the present time and he is already able to sit, shake a paw, lay down, and die when you shoot him for a treat.  He loves his toys.  One of his favourites is his mini schnauzer stuffed puppy.  He has a wonderful family who love him unconditionally as he loves them.  He has already become part of the routine at home, especially at bedtime.  Around 10:30 pm in the evening he sits at the bottom of the bed and cries to get up so that he can enjoy lounging for a 1/2 hour before crate time.  Oh yes, and he loves to argue with the blow dryer every morning. Parker has brought so much love and happiness to our home.
