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.

Kukang was given to us by a friend. The first time we saw her she was so ugly and thin, she looks like a stray kitten and she was eating dry leaves. I said to myself...here we go again...another unwanted pup. At night, I was surprised that she did not make any fuss at all...she slept the whole night and she releived herself on the soil at the backyard. In the morning she licked my feet and that was it!!! We bonded!!!!


She had short double coat and it was so white that some people thought that she may have Labrador mixed in her genes. She was so affectionate and very intelligent, she sometimes has this tendency to go up the hierarchy ha ha!!!!


We will miss her so much!!!!
