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.

Oh querido Duque, realmente tu muerte ha sido tan inesperada. Jamas imagine que este momento llegaria tan pronto. Fueron ocho hermosos años los que comaprtimos contigo querido perrito. Aun recuerdo cuando acababas de nacer, eras un perrito adorable, tan cariñoso, fiel y buen compañero. Jamas te olvidare Duque, siempre estaras en nuestros corazones, recordaremos todos los momentos que vivimos contigo. Perdonanos por no haber sabido actuar ante lo que te ocurrio. Eres unico Duque. Muchas gracias por el tiempo compartido, por estar  alegre ante nuestra presencia, tu amor incondicional.

Te quiero mucho Duque. Espero volver a verte en el cielo, donde se que estas.

Hasta siempre. Con amor, Lisseth Lazo
