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.

Harry, I am so sorry about what happened to you. I LOVE you so much. You brought so many joy and happiness and your unconditional love was just incredible. I am so sorry if I didn't play with your favorite ball as much as you liked....I am so sorry if I didn't give you enough goddies, "yummy food" to you. I am so sorry I got a bit annoyed when you wanted to come sit on my laptop. I loved every second of this precious time we spent together, especially waking up in the morning and see you sleeping right next to me. I thought we had so much more time to spend together, I had no idea our time was limited to 5 years. Harry, I love you so much and I think about you every second of my life. Nothing will ever be the same without you. I LOVE you and I MISS you but I know we will see each other in time so wait for me.......
