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.

Henry i love and miss you very much.  I hope you will wait for me at rainbow bridge. I hope you know that i am sorry you had to get sick and leave me.  I knew you had pain and you could not bear it any longer. I miss you so much Henry.  I wish when i came home you were still on the stool in the kitchen meowing for me to give you more food.  And when you would lay on my orange blanket, you really loved that blanket. Then those big green eyes. I loved them so much. Henry I love you!
