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.

Rudy is a wild boy with a very interesting attitude. He is cocky and demands to be the center of the attention. He LOVES people and no matter who you are he is in your lap before you can blink. His way of greeting you is with his big underbite that makes him look like he is smiling at you. His favourite things are people, treats, showing off and chasing Hanna around the house. He works for a living, he is a trucker and lives in our transport all week and comes home on weekends to see the girls. He is whipped when it comes to Nicky our female Shih Tzu. When she is tired or sick or has a litter of puppies he actually brings her his treats and toys it is nothing we taught him but shocked us all. No matter who he meets he makes them fall in love with him he is either giving them kisses or running around and being all cute. But on weekends he shows us his soft side when he hops on your lap for a nap or cuddle and he knows every Sunday he gets his massage so he is ready Monday morning to go back to work.
