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 cat Pachacuti Inca Yupanqui was named after the Incas¨ best emperor and like the monarch, my Pachacuti was a macho macho being. He refused to tolerate spaying, and every time we attempted he fled. He died with his virility completely intact, mangled by a pair of chowchows while chasing an alluring queen in heat. Playful, insolent, rowdy and noisy, he was his cousin Vespasian´s best friend. His mother Rojita Xepacachimba had already preceded him over the Rainbow Bridge when she died on July 15th 2005 due to childbirth. Obviously a historian´s cat, he might be teaching Inca history over there. I miss his loud yowling and his bites.Cecilia Ruiz de Ríos, Nicaraguan historian.
