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.

Lucy is a cuddly bundle of love. She never has a mean thought toward anything, even squirrels continue to munch peanuts with Lucy standing beside them. She is even tolerant of her housemate Miss Penny who is constantly steeling from her and swearing at her. Miss Lucy just turns the other cheek. Her best friend is her protector and housemate Snoopy who likes to take long walks with her on the trails and shares her bed with Lucy when she has a bad dream.
