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.

I am a cute and very hyper-active puppy...love to run around the house and chew on my owner's sleepers. I always want to play with the black cat of my owner's relative, however he seemed to run away most of the time..maybe afraid of me...
I also wear a blue colar with bright stones with it and two jingling bells. My owner always want to put hair clip on me but i don't like it... i always manage to take them off.
I love the family i have right now...coz they also Love me sooo Mucchhhhh!!!
