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.

My name is Keena Marie Cute As Can Be! I'm a bad pooch who likes to cause trouble, well at least when I'm not laying in bed until noon or soaking up the sun out on my porch. I think it's funny to bark by the door so mommy and daddy think I have to pee, then I start chasing squirrels and chipmunks instead. I never catch them but I will as soon as I master the art of tree climbing. Even though I like to keep them on their toes, I love my mommmy and daddy!!
