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 love everything, honestly, EVERYTHING. Dogs, cats, people and even pidgeons are my playmates! I only have two speeds, Super warp turbo, and off. My favorite snacks are cucumbers and broccoli (mmmmm yummy.. but not too much broccoli, or else mom says my farts stink EWWWWW) I love swimming, and made my first trip to the St Laurence this summer and spent the entire week swimming! Mom think's I'm part kangaroo, because I can attain a 4 foot vertical jump!! I love the snow, except when my paws get too cold. I don't love the heat too much, and usually spend the days lying in mom's shower (the marble is nice and cool :) )  Despite my small size, I can rip apart any toy you give me, so watch out :P
