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.

She is a fiesty little lady we found her in 1983 living in the dump of a bush town in Queensland Australia it took 2 days to catch her and 2 days to clean her up she was about 8 to 10 weeks old, since then she has been a faithful pal loves to sleep at the foot of the bed from the day she found she could jump that high. She does not like anyone to watch her eat and she takes her time She loves her walks and ridinging in the car  if she sees a kangaroo she is in seventh heaven she has 3  playmates  Fuppy ,Shamrock  and  Lady Cat loves to play ball and hates having her nails cut we have had a few nips from those sharp little teeth.  No matter how many time you brush her she is always a scruffy little thing but she is ours for keeps.
