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.

My mom rescued me and took me home after I was brought into the animal hospital where she worked. We're best friends and she loves me soooooooooooo much.
I love to cuddle and snuggle and I love everybody! Well, I get jealous when other dogs come near my family. I like to chase my kitty pal everyday , we have fun, but I hate it when she takes over my bed!....but then again thats when mom feels sorry for me and let's me sleep with her.  Going for walks is fun but I'm older now and small so I don't get far but thats ok b/c that's whem mom puts me in the snuggly and carries me!!!! A Dog's Life .....nothing like it!
