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 my Mummy and my sister Nellie (Cat).
I like to hide people's socks.
My sister's live on a farm and they look feral.  LOL  I'm the only cute one! (And I have no idea where my brothers are)
I love to go for walkie's with my mummy and sook if she goes without me.
I love when my cousin Lela comes to visit me.  We play for hours!
I don't like to eat dry dog food.  Cat food is fine though.
I don't like it when other dogs don't bark at me, I bark at them so they will bark back at me.
