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.

In Memory of Peaches Ramos...

My baby died tonight and I'm filled with so much sadness.

She was the best pet you could ever have asked for and all she ever

wanted in return was some love and attention. My dad and I (among others) loved her

so much and we wish she could have lasted a little longer. I'm so sorry no one was

home to ease your pain, baby. I wish I could have been there. You were and remain my

heart and my little baby. I will always miss you. I can't wait till you meet me on the other side.

I hope you're in a better place, and feeling as loved as you always were. Grandpa loves you.

love, mommy
