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 little "banned" terror is the best thing that life could have given a person. There is no reason why this breed should be banned in any province. She is the biggest lovey dovey and kisser in the world. She loves everyone, people or otherwise. hehehe. She is great, playful, but loves to be the leader of the pack. She has such a personality, and loves to show everyone she meets just how crazy she really is. Dakota is a very excitable puppy, and wants to please. She learns so quickly, but also likes to test her luck every now and then. I think they come with selective hearing.
