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.

She's gone on 10 July 2007...
I left her in the hand of God. Believing the Heaven is where she has gone. She gone thru the thick and thin of the past 5 years with me. It's short... too short but I treasure the moments and whats left behind. To the Might Dear Lord, please let appear once again in my dream and I can see her with little wings. Meowing to me... I miss her so. I wanna say I m sorry and I wanna say I love her so... God, Please tell her, I love her and miss her.
