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.

My name is Kwin, I am named after my mom's favourite fishing lake. This here is Zachus he is my big brother. He still hasn't really decided he wants to play with me but I'm wearing him down. My brother is a bullmastiff/lab. This is our favourite spot in the house. Its the kitchen, "mooching" zone.
 I was born Sept 27/2003 and Zac we don't know my Mom and Dad rescued him from the shelter. I feel pretty safe hanging out in the backyard with him.
