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.

The Littlest Roux


Once there was a hammie named Little Roux

He loved everyone in his family

His two brothers, Donnie and Jack

His grandparents and Uncle and Aunt

And his mother—me.


He lived a long, strong life

Filled with no doubts or fears

Other than those last few days

Because of an infection with his ears.


At times Jack or Donnie would aggress

And make the little one squeak

There were times when supervision was called for

Not just with the cats anymore


But Little Roux stuck through

To the very end of his days

With no moaning or groaning

Or poor shape whatsoever

Just his almond craving

So, be at peace forever.


God Bless You up in Hammie Heaven,

Little Roux

You are now reunited with your brothers


Love Brittany, Benay, Gary, Rusty, and Tara
