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 love to chew bones and chase anything small and furry.  I go nuts when I think I am going bye-bye.  I just can't wait to get out and see everything.  My momma says she wishes she had a sled to hitch me too cause she would save gas money going to work.  If I get outside the fence with no leash I just put my nose to the ground and run forever!.  Whooooohoooooo!  I am good door draft stopper.  I lay right against the door cause I love the cool air that creeps in.  Momma wishes she could sell all the hair I shed.  She says we'd be rich.  I have two younger sisters and boy are they a pain in the backside.  They always want to try and kiss me and they'll even steal my bones if I don't hide them good.  I keep sticking them in momma's purse but she keeps taking them out.
