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.

Hi my name is Galaxy, it means An assembly of brilliant, glamorous, or distinguished persons or things.
I am now 3 months old.
I have been living with Jessica (my owner) for about 2 months (since I was 1 month old).
Jessica doesn't know if I am male or female yet.
The thinkgs I love are: crickets, my hidout rock and the heat pad under my tank.
The things I don't like are: loud noises, fast movements, the cats (smokey & Jenny)
My most favorite moment was the first time I got a tank of my own(without my annoying sibling).
