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 like to sleep on top of the covers in between my owners at night. During the day, when everyone leaves, I like to throw around the pillows on the sofa and stand on the dining room table so that I can see my doggy friends over the fence and talk to them. My favorite place in the house is the chair in front on the window. My owners leave the curtains open so that I can see everyone on the street. I'm known as "The doggy in the window." Best memory... being adopted by my owners!
