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.

      We've been through so much together, boyfriends, break-ups, heartbreaks, bad parenting, falling in love, sickness. Now in death I hold a part of him in my heart for there is no better place for him to be.


      Though he was blind, had a dodgy tummy, sore legs we never thought it would be his kidneys would be the thing to kill him, we thought it'd be old age. but now I miss him & I'll hold him high in my thoughts forever.


       We had him for a few years & he's always been there, at times he's been more reliable than my other friends. Then just as things started to go right his kidneys failed, spew was everywhere & now I'm having to go without my baby & he's alone without me.


My dearest Connor.


*love forever babe*
