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 Wife and I adopeted Kyo while we were in japan. he was the cutest kitten you ever saw and was so hyper. as he got older he would talk to you he loved people and loved to tell people about his day. Kyo saw me as "daddy" and would always come when i called him or when he see me walking in from work. He was so fun watch and to have. He was run over in our apartment parking lot and found the next day
Kyo mom and dad still love you
