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.

Mi bebé, mi corazón, mi gordo bello, vivirás en mi recuerdo por toda la eternidad. Desde el primer momento que te ví me robaste el corazón. Brindaste tanto amor y felicidad a nuestras vidas, traiste alegría y significado a nuestro hogar. Fuiste compañero y confidente en los días difíciles y una fuente de ternura todos los días de tu vida. Tu partida deja un hueco muy grande en nuestros corazones, siempre te recordaremos y siempre te extrañaremos. Siempre recordaré tus caricias con tu cabecita y tus maullidos mañaneros. Todavía siento tu calor en mis labios mientras te daba besitos en la cabeza. Tu recuerdo estará vivo hasta el día que me vuelva a reunir contigo... Gracias por compartir tu vida conmigo. Siempre te amaré.

Mami y papi te extrañaran por siempre. Amén.
