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.

Tiger Callahan died tragically of FIP on September 9, 2005.  He was a truely incredible cat who brought joy to the hearts of all who were lucky enough to meet him.  His calm, loving nature helped to domesticate our two scared kitties, Captain and Peanut.  He was best known for his affectionate little kisses/scratches, cuddling, and chasing his tail around in a circle.  He was given a great home, and was loved very much by his Mommy, his Papa, and his brothers Marxie and Puppy.  Although his time on this earth was far too short, he made a big impact on our lives, and will be with us always in our hearts.  Bye, bye Tiger... your in a better place now and we will be together again someday.
