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.

This is Jake and Dakota ... Dakota is a female and Jake is a male ... Both rescued from the local pound and a great joy to be around.  We adopted Dakota after Jake's brother Java died due to complications from Epilepsy.
Dakota joins the ranks of my animal farm, which include Jake and three cats whose original names were Nikki, Zoro and Maggie ... however became, in my boyfriend's humorous mind, Porky, Piggy and Pissy ... long story, but the names have remained...
Tell me I don't do a lot of houswork with my hairy little clan!!!
