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.

My name is Samson but my friends call me Sam.  I live with Fruit the Cat and also Bill and Lonnie.  Humans aren't so bad, but the cat tries to be top dog all the time, but that spot is already taken in this house.  We just lost Sissy and we are all sad, but I will take care of my owners and help them get through it.  I hear we may be getting another dog, but it will never be as good as Sissy was.  She was my constant companion.  I will miss playing tug of war with her.  She is with Jesus now.  I hope you love your dogs and cats as much as I am loved.  Sorry if I made any typos, but I am just a dog after all. :)
