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.

Hiya!  I'm Hammie!  I am a very well treated black bear hamster.  Eventhough it's only me here I live in a hamster condo!  There are three levels to my house!  on the bottom floor you'll find my sleeping area, where I like to build a nest.  You'll also find my wooden house for hiding from those nosey cats, and my litter box, Yes i do use my litter box!  On the second level you'll find my favorite toy!  My wheel!  And my water of corse!  And on the top level is my food dish and another hiding place that i have stuffed with my fluff to make it more comfortable! I love to sleep durring the day, and run in my wheel alllllllllllll night! over and over and over!  I can't get enough of that wheel!  My favorite treats are the yougert drops my mommie gives me!  yum yum!  I  wonder what those cats find so interesting about me, they seem to sit and stare for hours!  The other day my mommie scared my pants (no i dont really have pants) off!  She was vaccuuming outside my cage and i wasn't expecting it!  I couldn't move for over an hour,  I  was so scared!! I think I scared her too!  Sorry Mom!!
