All about Callum
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.

Hi, I'm Callum. I'm five years old. I love my family, but I love my mom especially. I'm a great dog, I love to play and go for walks on the beach, and I'm a really good swimmer.
Vote for me as cutest dog, I really am adorable. I don't like other dogs, they scare me, I love Billie, my sister, though. She's just a puppy, and great fun to play with. I'm a great dog, with a killer personality, I've got a gentle heart and just need to be loved.
