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 Baron. I am a 4 month old standard poodle.
My mommy has a 13 yr old mini poodle, but she is still a little jealous of me.
 My mom says I can't go in with the horses and is teaching me to stay on the outside of the fence with my sister. But I sure do like kissing their faces. I know how to sit, stand, catch, down, come, and talk on command and am learning more, it is so much fun. I love my new home. There are more pictures of me and my friends at www.lynshorsesandwolves.piczo.com
