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 am a darling young pure bred yellow lab, who loves to get all the attention I can get. I am also a real mamma's boy, and most times I could care less when daddy comes home from work.  I love the outdoors but am really afraid of water. My favorite things to do are play frisbee and cuddle up next to my toy bunny for a nap. I am very energetic, and love going on walks when the days are cool enough, and weather permitting (which isn't very often, living close to the ocean). My most embarrasing moment would be my first bath. After I got out and was dried off by mommy, I went to go down stairs and slipped on the hard wood steps. I was always careful after that one. My most cherished memory was meeting my new parents. I couldn't be any happier here. They spoil me with all sorts of treats and I get a new toy, every month, as long as I have been good, which I am most of the time. I still need to learn how not to jump on mommy, and hit her in the tummy, because I am going to get a sister around Christmas, and I don't want to hurt her, before I get a chance to meet her, and help mommy and daddy take care of her.
