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.

I miss Sheba already.She was a good dog,and my baby.She loved to play with her toys,and loved to have her belly rubbed.I will never forget her.She started having bad seizures and started getting really aggressive with people and animals.She couldn't see very good.I had to euthanasia her.It was a very hard thing to do,but I know she will not suffer anymore.She could not play all that great at the end.She had no energy.Sheba is missed,and she will always be in my heart.
