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.

"GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN" In loving memory of my bestest friend "Nutty"...luv u alwayz neha.14 years...blink of an eye n they have flown by.I still remember the day u came home,in a tiny basket...so timid n shy n scared.Time flew n our frndship grew.We became da best of frnds.U neva uttered a word yet u said it all,n i always went on n on with my words.Since u've been gone u have left an emptiness.I come back home only to find that no one shall run to me with a big jump.Sum1 who wud wait for me to come home was u.When i study i know ur not with me physically but my heart knows ur still by my side in ur usual spot tryin to study with me...i do realize tht i dont have to open da door n let u out for a leak in da middle of da nite.I miss eating chocolates n cheese n boy how can i forget da peanuts tht u adored eating.With u having gone,i have lost my companion who walked with me in my gud n my bad.Even though i miss u soo soo much,i know tht u r where i left u with a heavy heart..sleepin in ur grave.with tht smile of urz...da peace on ur face shows n i know tht my baby is happy...I pray to god tht this time around u shud have a wonderful life ahead...
