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 was worried about you since the day I brought you home.
You were reluctant to come out of your shell.
I had hoped that you were just shy, but feared that you might have already been sick from before.
I tried to remain optimistic, and even brought home a companion so that you wouldn't be lonely.
You did come out at times, although you spent a lot of time in the igloo I bought for you.
I was very sad when you passed away.
I wish your stay could have been longer.

Rest In Peace Shyloh
I Love You And Miss You Dearly
