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.

Hi, I am Apollo, named after the Greek god.  I'm a good guy, but I dont let strangers think it.  I keep them on edge - you know?  I gotta look tough and be a big dog for my mommy.  But it's hard to maintain my image when mommy keep  babying me in front of people.  Like come on - cant she just pretend like im all big and stuff?
After all, I am 10 months old.  I weigh over 80lbs. Im not as big as my Great Dane sister Hera yet, but I am pretty Huge- especially when you see me next to a whippet.
I like with a kid, he is 10yrs old, but a major pain in my rear end.  So I dont really have time for kids, but I do like other dogs and I even get on well with the cat variety (not to eat - but to play with).
I like to eat, go running, love to go hiking, and play with other big dogs.
I dont dig being confined, or gettin sprayed with the water bottle, ....
I love to chill on the bed, but mommy and dad dont let me, so I go sleep with my granma - she's a pushover.  Every night my Dane sister and I spread out on granny's bed.  She seems to like it.
I gottaget going - walkies!
Take care
