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.

Hi! My name is Dino. I am a brown Chihuahua with a big heart. I love to follow my mommy around all day and sleep in her warm cozy bed! I hate takig baths! The only thing I hate more than taking baths is when my mommy pets other dogs! I get really jealous about that! But I always end up forgiving her. I am REALLY REALLY REALLY protective of my mommy! I dont let anyone come near her unless i know them! And even if I do know them, sometimes I still dont like them being arond her! It's not that I'm trying to be mean, i just dont want my mommy to get hurt! Well that's about it about me!
