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.

Skeeter is a tiny 3 lb Chihuahua. A lot of people would call her a t-cup, but there is no such thing. She loves her mommy and daddy very much. She loves to cuddle with her mommy while she sits at the computer, and sleeps on mommy's pillow every night. Her best friend is Honeybunch, who was born the same day as she was, tho not the same litter. Other favorite things to do is play zoom doggy across the floor, cuddling with little puppies, and sleeping and eating. Hope you enjoy her picture.
