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.

I love to eat ice cubes and my favourite dog food is Benneful. I love playing with my cat brothers(5) and going for walks with my humans. I don't like hockey sticks, vacuums(although i hate it, I love attacking it), or no name brand dog food. My pet peeves are when my humans always tickle my feet and pay attention to the cats and not me. My most favourite toy is my old tennis ball that i had as a puppy when i first got to my new home. The place I love to hang around and get some sleep is on my teen human's bed, she always takes me on long walks and rubs my belly. My most embarassing moment happened when i was 10 months old, my owner went to let me out in the backyard and I hadn't given her much time to open the doors, so I accidentally ran into the screen door and all my humans started laughing at me, but I got lots of hugs and kisses afterwards. My most cherished moment was when I was brought home and finally realized I actually had a home with a family to love me, and some new kitty brothers aswell!!
