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, I'm Clover, the Syrian Hamster!
I like:
 Food, treats, getting my tummy rubbed, getting scratched behind the ear, running in my wheel, napping, exploring, and digging or burrowing in my cage.
I don't like:
A dirty cage, loud noises, people who squeeze me too hard, being buggede while I'm napping, old food, etc.
My most embarassing moment was when I was sleeping, and my Mommy, Patricia, thought I was dead becatse I was curled up so tight. She tipped my wheel, and I tumbled over. BONK! Woah! That was a wake-up call!
Of course,my most cherished moment was when my Mommy, Patricia, held me for the first time. At first, I was frightened, but then, she pet me and spoke to me softly, and then, I knew she was'nt gonna hurt me. Ah, it was truly a memorable moment!
