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.

Couldn't tell she was suppose to have long fur, it was matted with poop so much that it stuck to her skin. She smelled of the barn and barn poop, where she was living for about two yrs. of her young life. She hadn't know any other life but four walls in the barn where she ate, slept, pooped, and played with her only friend Tia a rotweiler who was in no condition to be kept alive. She was kept there for a reason,to try and breed her to make money, which fortunatly was unsucessful for obvious reasons. I fell in love with her right away despite how she looked and smelled. The owner offered her to me for free. As much as I didn't hesitate to take her,she didn't hesitate to jump into my car. I took her home wondering what my hubby would say to me when he saw her......
