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.

This site is dedicated to life of our beloved dog Geno. he unfortunatly lost his battle with  kidney failer on January 8,2006. I am a dog who loves being with my family i also enjoying barking at the mailman. My favorite toy is the squeeky santa given to my by my sister Sabrina. I am a junk food junkie with a vey big sweet tooth! My favorite lounging spot is next to my mommy. I love going for walks and chasing the birds. An embarissing moment for me was when i became sick and was forced to wear a diaper so i don't go potty on the floor. In the summer you can always find me working my doggie tan. I also enjoy water ice, i prefer cherry but any kind will do. My household enemy is the VACCUM CLEANER!!!!! I also hate getting baths.. I love to have my picture taken. I am very afraid of thunderstorms and most of all being home alone. I love my family very very much. i would like to thank you for visiting my page please come back for updates! Mommy please dont worry about me i love you and will be waiting for you in heaven<33 xoxox
