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.

My name is Willie and this is my blog. Here I will tell you the amazing life my owners provide me.
I was born in this city called St Benjamin, so I was told, 3 1/2 yrs ago. This is in the middle of nowhere! Anyway, my mother was a bichon frise, my dad was a poodle. I was adopted by some nice folks who took me to Montreal when i was a baby.
They are cool guys! I love them to death!! You know what I like? To go for a walk in the morning, then another one in the evening, when they come home. My days are boring...I stay home alone, most of the time. They have to leave in the morning, right after my first walk - I have no idea where they go, but they are pretty tired when they come back. Anyway... as soon as they come in, another walk. On this one I have more time to run, check out stuff, meet my buddies.
Recently I got a new sweater. It was so cold outside that I decided to poo at home. I knew that would put me in trouble, but i was willing to suffer the consequenses of being caged for a few hours. It was better than freeze outside!! Going out with a sweater was much better... I did have an embarassing moment with this piece of cloth, though... The hat covered my eyes and I hit my head against the wall... My owners were laughing their heads off! I was just... ashamed...
Then I lie down with them, give them some affection. Poor guys need it... They haven't seen me all day, i'm sure they miss me. We watch some tv, I cuddle them for a while, then we go to bed. There are some days that they stay home with me all day. We watch movies and eat popcorn... boy, i love popcorn! They eat good stuff... You know, the other day I had something called mango. I loved it so much that i went through the garbage bag to get some more. That put me in a lot of trouble later on...
So, that's a little bit of my life story... I will come back with more about me another time... Bye for now!
