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.

 I really wish that he could be here today, and see another pretty day. But, since he can't I will say this, I'll LOVE him always in heat, and bliss. I know that he is looking down, and does not want me to wear a frown.  And, if I try not to sin, then I know I will see him again. The last thing that I want to say is, "Dont forget me.", and you will have a gift. You'll see. I know you are waiting for me in heaven, Just be patient. Instead of two years you have been gone it seems like seven. Some things have changed, like weight and height, but when I get there promise not to bite. On that day I tried not to cry, I still don't know the reason why. I guess I will just have to wait, but till that day I can promise on my day I won't be late.
