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.

I am a wild and crazy pup. I have the best family in the world my mom, 2 big sister, and a big brother. My mom does all my training but when its time to play its my 6 year old big brother to the rescue. I just love to sleep with him and he is the one who feeds me. I hate the cat when my family gives it attention because they are mine, however I sleep with her when we are alone.  My favorite treat is beleive it or not grapes I will do anything for a grape!
My most embarrassing moment was very recent 10/10/05 my boy jake whom I love to death and will protect with my life was carving his pumpkin for halloween and he put his hand inside and started screaming because it was so cold. I thought that the pumpkin was eating him my hackles went up and I was on the attack. I went after the pumpkin and jake laughed at me so hard that he wet his pants when the pumpkin rolled and down the hill after me and I ran away crying.  Nnow when I walk by those sneekie pumpkins I growl at them just to let them know that I'v got my eyes on them. Soif  you come to my house dressed as a pumpkin I'm gona getcha everyone else is safe.
