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.

Hi, my name is Pikachu. I can be found on the bed sleeping or on the couch waiting for my Daddy and Puppa (who I love so much) to come home. I like my old sock toys, walks, cuddles and always getting my spot on the couch and bed. If I am in the mood, I love to give kisses. I do not like other dogs really but I do have some friends. I hate baths, not getting my spot on the couch or bed and people who do not pet me.
