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.

Kiwi would drive most people crazy but we fell in love with her the first time we saw a picture of her. We adopted her from a couple that had split up and so it was hard in the beginning because she had a lot of bad habits but now she is getting much better.
She loves to cuddle and snuggle with us as much as possible. Right now while I am sitting here typing this she is laying on a pillow that is behind my back and she will stay there all day except when I move then she must follow mommy.
We have other pets in the household but Kiwi makes sure she gets the most attention. Ross is our older dog and he puts up with her until he's had enough then he lets her know with his deep voice and she understands and leaves him be.
She has her favorite toys and she knows each of their names like: Ginia is a little brown bear that I had that someone sent me from Virginia, she has a set of rubber rings, an elephant named George and many rawhide bones. If you ask her where Ginia is she runs and gets it and the same with the others when you say their names. She is a very smart dog and sometimes a little too smart for her own good but she is our baby girl and we love her.
