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.

06/11/2007, i found out today spotdog has tumors. i don't know how long he has, x-rays didn't look good. i paid $50 for spotdog, he looked pitiful when i got him. he had a big head, little body, wirey coat. i got him for my dad, he had a stroke and his dog got run over and i thought it would help him to have a dog to play with. dad died and mom isn't much of a dog person. problem was spotdog was a house dog and mom didn't want him in the house. i built him a pin and i could see that he wasn't happy and i took him home. radar was my lab mix, he was old. spotdog kept him on his toes, i think he lived longer because of spot. spot was the name he was given, he was much more than a spot, i named him spotdog. i have always told him he's about the best dog, not quite, but he's my boy. spotdog is the smartest dog i have had. i'd tell him to wagg his tail and he would. he always is glad to see me and misses me when i'm gone. i don't want to let him go, but i know it won't be long. it will be hard to make it with out my tailwagger.
