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.

Winston is my 7 year old baby!  He is the life of the party!  Full of energy and he loves to play with a "ball"!  Actually he goes insane for a ball!  He can be found lounging around the house with his 2 older brother and sister!  Tabitha & Bomber..they are my 2 beautiful cats.  Tabitha is the boss of our household!  All 6 pounds of her..Winston listens very well or he will see her running up behind him biting his legs!!  Bomber on the other hand is the scaredy cat..he tolerates Winston very well.
