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.

To our beautiful, loving Patchworth...


The time we spent was short,


but it was special, all the same.


You look at us from above now


whenever we call your name


It hurts to see your picture


knowing we can never hold you in this life again


your meow's, your licks, your look, your touch,


Our world will never be the same.


You will be missed and cried for


for many years to come


but in the end, you're still our friend


we'll meet again when the end comes


-Wendy
