All about Keiko
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 am Keiko!! I am really smart. I love to study EVERYTHING. One day I am going to turn on the TV & watch animal planet by myself. I am the adopted brother to "Buffy", & the real blood brother to "Mikka." I love my owners, & love to go to the leash-free parks in Mississauga. I love to tease other dogs, because no one can catch me, I'm too fast!!
I love to woo, & I am teaching my little sister talk. I taught both the other dogs to use the doggie door that my owner Reno put in. I can't wait until Mikka grows up, so I can play-fight with her.
Thank you for listening to me woo.
