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.

Gray Matter you were a really sweet, loyal and loving little (fat) cat. You loved laying in the sun, and hiding in the garage waiting for a mouse or rat to catch.  And really liked to curl up with us on the lounge of a night time and snuggle in. But you also did some pretty weird things that made us laugh, like getting poked in the eye by blades of grass, but not moving an inch, just blinking, hoping that the grass would just go away. Or giving me "look what I have" looks when you would sit on Daddy's lap. You were a beautiful cat Gray Matter and  you are going to be greatly missed by your family.

We will love you and miss you
