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.

To the one that watched after me from the time I was born.  I never got to tell you goodbye because He called you home before I got home from school.  I guess someone down here decided we did not need to be together.  If I knew who did it to you I would make them pay.  You did not deserve to suffer like you did.  You were a wonderful, beautiful "sister".  Take care of Mimi and Poppie in heaven till I get there.  I love you Nini, from Jennifer
