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.

Randy was a very affectionate rabbit who never harmed anyone or anything, he had a girlfriend 'Daisy' with which he fathered a litter of four cute bouncing baby bunnies.  Randy loved to play with whatever he could grab ahold of and throw, he was a dear comanion to his guinea pig friends who would sleep on Randy and crawl all over him.  He loved to be petted and brushed regularly and enjoyed nibbling on bananas, kale, lettuce and quick oats.
