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.

My little baby Cappy, you were the youngest to go at only nine days old. I miss your sweet, bright face every morning but now you can smile and give your cute squeaks to your mother, Gigi, and your little sister, Cookie, who also left this world way too soon. Your baby brother, Teddy, and your daddy, Snowball, are doing all they can to contain the sadness of losing you and your mother and sister. Mom, Dad, Joe, Melissa, Teddy, Snowball, and I love you and miss you deeply. I can't wait until the day when I meet you, Gigi, and Cookie at Rainbow Bridge. Rest in Peace Cappuccino Corcione.
