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 mom calls me Lisa. 
My kennel name was Smiley- so my mum renamed me because of my constant happy smile.
I always go for an hour run in the most beautiful park in Waterloo. I tried so hard to be a Therapy dog but I tend to get rather bossy when I have to be on a leash so I couldn't fullfil my mums hopes for me.. I love to play with all dogs, but those that chase me are my favourite. I am a very good listener especially when I want too. My mum understands my needs just as I do hers. We make a perfect team!
