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.

                My mum owns Kitzspa Cattery, we sell Burmese kittens. Our first breeding female was Cinders I had a special bond with her. I was her favorite she was mine. She has had many kittens, She has had seven litters, most of all she was my big sweet heart.


                We were taking her into be spayed, we took her to our vet. I was home alone, the vet called and said she passed away, a very hard thing on a 14yr old girl. She had a disease called HMR, which is a thickening in the hearts walls (can weigh 7-8 pounds in a sever case, usually only starts when the cat is between 3-5yrs). After surgery she was placed in a kennel, and soon after a vet noticed she had stopped breathing, they put her on oxygen but she had a heart attack.


                In one day my baby, sweetheart, and angel was swept away from me. Please cherish your pets and remember to always do what you believe is the right thing to do no matter how hard.


                     Signed,


                           a heartstruck teenager
