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.

In Loving Memory of our dearly beloved Omani cat called Whisky who died very suddenly leaving us deeply saddened. 

He was a very large, beautiful, intelligent black and white Arabic cat who loved life and returned this unconditional love plus a lot more...

We cherished him for almost 13 years and loved him more than life itself, and still cannot believe that he is now in Heaven.

We miss you a lot.

Rest in Peace beloved one.

Lots of Love,

Brian & Anne Scott xx
