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 Buster.  My favorite lounging spot is in the backyard next to the palm tree where it's nice and sunny.  I can sleep there for a long time.  My mommy says I look dead when I'm sleeping there.  I like to run around the back yard and pretend I'm a famous runner winning a race on the track.  I also like to play football with my Mommy. We Play for hours.    I hate cats.  I just don't like them.    
 One of my most embarrasing moment is when I tried to run inside the house thru the sliding door.  I didn't realize that there was a screen door.  I bumped into it and I just shook it off.  My mommy came to see if I was hurt and she said I had a little scratch on my nose. 
A cherished moment is the first time I saw my Mommy.   It was a nice sunny day at the park.  She looked like an angel in her white dress.  She picked me up and and told me I was sooo cute.
