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.

What an awesome addition to our family.
Annie, has quickly become the darling of our neighborhood. During our evening walks, everyone has to make sure they come out to greet her.

Not particularly fond of the pool yet, but getting more daring all the time.

The only thing we're working on is the "Garden Wars". She keeps stealing flowers out of the garden!

Already won her first ribbon. "Best Pet of the Day" beating out 15 other dogs!
