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.

Hello! I am Jessie! If Ripley can have his own page, then I will make my own, hehehehe... Ripley shouldn't forget who is princess here! I am definately daddy's little princess and he spoils me accordingly. I am a cuddler and my favorite time of the day is when my daddy lifts me into his lap and cuddles with me while I sit upright and lay back in his arms. Mommy says that I act like a spoiled little girl-person. I also love to retrieve and I look forward to going to our lake and swimming everyday, when it is warm out... Overall, I think I am a pretty special little girl and mommy and daddy can give me ALL their attention because they don't have kids (YET)! Oh, yes, I love it when my daddy calls me his "girlie-muffin". He is the best daddy ever, and I know he will train me to be a great hunter this fall...
