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, my name is Precious and I'm a purebred pomeranian. I was born in September of 2003 and I also have a sister named Belle who is pure black and she lives with me. I am a very tiny "teacup" pom and I only weigh approx. 3 pounds. There are four pomeranians in my household including myself. My sister Belle, Cookie and Buttons. We all love to play together and we're spoiled rotten. My human family is always bringing us treats and toys. I love to wear my little sweaters when I go outdoors in the cold weather. Please vote for me!
