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.

Jill was my 4-year-old BIG baby girl! I got her when I was 10,when we moved to the country. She taught me many imporant lessons. She taught me to be strong when I was weak...she taught me to be happy when I was down...she taught me so many things I can't name them all!! I lost her to cancer a few weeks ago. These are some of my feelings that I need to get off my chest.


JILL___ By:Jaylin


Jill you were a great dog. You licked away my tears when I needed you to. You licked away the blood when I fell down, and you helped me find my way when I was just an awkward teenager who had gotten lost along the way in her life! You know what though Jill those last few weeks when you needed me I helped you in the way you helped me! So Jill R.I.P and I WILL see you again one day...be strong...I know it's hard...I know...I know_...
