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.

Full attention is what I crave. I want to be with Dina and Don all the time. I'm a fairly good boy except I really don't like any other dogs or cats. Squirrels...don't even mention them!  I like it when my masters share a little of their toast with me in the morning.  I love the morning sun. I love to play. Unfortunately,  I just found out I have cancer. Dina is trying her best to keep me pain free. I'm on medication now and I went for my 1st accupuncture session this past Monday. Wow it felt great. I now have a new step sister. Karina is a 2 1/2 old blond lab retreiver. I'm still not very kean on the idea I have to share her with my masters but like I was told, she's here to stay.  She keeps me on my toes and she doesn't mind that I eat here yummy puppy food or take her toys away from her.
