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.

Me encanta dormir en la cama cuando tengo frío.
Amo el pollo, es mi comida favorita.
No me gusta que me regañen y me escondo debajo de la cama.
Tengo un motor muy potente que prendo cuando algo me molesta.
Cuando mi mamá o mi abuela llegan a la casa me tienen que saludar a mi primero, si no lo hacen me enojo.
Soy un loquito en la calle, no puedo ver nada que tenga ruedas porque salgo corriendo detrás, quiero pelear con todos los perros así sean el doble mío.
