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.

Pepper was adopted into our family from Miami Animal Shelter in Kansas.

What a bundle of joy! She is the youngest of the three pets we have and a twinkle in all of our eyes.

Pepper is joined to our hips and loves to go everywhere with us. She enjoys a good night sleep cuddled up on the family bed.

She loves her brother Reznor and her sister Sadie and adds a lot of spark and youth into their lives.
