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.

Hi Everyone:
I'm Merlin the Chow Chow.
I'm a very BIG chow and weigh 93 lbs.!
I live in Montreal with my little sister: MehMeh the Snot Nosed Chinese Shar-pei
I'm an excellent guard dog and I spend most of my time looking after my family and patrolling my grounds. Nothing gets past me or by me.
I am a blind chow, but no one ever notices.
Even though I can't see you , I always know you are there.
I don't care for strangers, but I love playing with other dogs.
I am not a dog. I am a God - I am a Chow Chow.
