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.

I am a 2 year old Rottweiler who loves my family and am happiest when someone (anyone) is touching me.   I was a gift from my oldest sister to my parents.  What a gift I am! 
I follow my Mom & Dad everywhere they go.  I even sleep in their room.  
My favorite toy is a hard rubber chewy.  (I wish I could just bite through it!)
My best friend is my younger brother Jed (another Rottweiler). 
My most cherished memory is when my parents brought Jed home to meet me.  I really thought he was my baby when he arrived.  I took good care of him and cuddled with him all the time.  (Infact, I still do!)  Jed is a lot bigger than I am and he just became a Daddy.  I love Jed!
