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.

Sahsa is my second golden and she has a wonderful temperment.  She the complete oppostie to Copper and she shows her affection by laying with you snuggling, or just trying to play fight.  Her bark is no where near as loud as Copper's but is very very deep.  She doesn't make as much noise as Copper but instead of bashing you she will sit down infront of you and wait for you to pet her.  She also has a huge bed of her own and loves it on occassion she will come and sleep with me but she usually will just come up in the morning and sit and stare at me until I wake up.  Sasha loves eating rocks and just had major surger to remove one that was to big to pass.  I was there with her during surgery and spent most of night with her at the hospital.  She is doing great now and the sutures are removed on Monday.  I love both of my goldens the same and they will both be getting lots of presents this year.
