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.

Fluffy came into my life when i was 4. She went on to give me some of the happiest years of my life. Fluffy brought a special light to the family bringing us more together. She would give us great laughs. I still remember that road trip we took from NY to florida leaving her mark on different states along the road...it was fun with her there. She just had this power that made you smile when you looked at her adorable little face. Fluffy seemed healthy but then she stopped eating. My father took her to the vet and we found out she had a tumor in the stomach. The vet said the best would be to put her to sleep because the operation would be too hard on her. I remember my last night with her was christmas night, I kissed her little pale paw and said goodnight. The next morning my dad took her to the vet to put her to sleep, i wasnt strong enough to go. Not a day goes by that i dont shed a tear for my beloved. My smile is an open wound without her.

Mami, papi, Carlos, Alison, and Alejandra miss you baby, the house feels empty without you.
Have fun in heaven!
