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.

Misty, our beautiful little companion and family member for just over 16 years, gave her unconditional love and devotion to all of us.  We are all heartbroken that she is no longer with us.  Misty's body grew weaker, but her spirit never wavered.  For a few precious moments she played with her little stuffed bear, ran a couple of laps around the yard, and even chased a white butterfly.  Our memories of her, and the wonderful times we had together, will last forever, but we still miss our beloved Misty very, very much.
