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 heart and soul went with you


As you crossed that great divide


You did not go alone


You had my Henry at your side


And although my heart is breaking


In every possible way


At Heaven's Gate you're waiting


Til I we meet again some day


In memory of my lovely lass Sadie and Henry my cat of 19 years


With utter love


Mummy


 


 


Rest in Peace my darlings Sadie and Henry my cat of nineteen years.


Both entered Heaven's Gates together on February 1st, 2005
