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.

I am a very loving dog always wanting to cuddle up close.  I moved to Canada in Nov 2006 and have fallen in love with the snow.  I am 3 years old and love to play with my pet cats called Sammy, Poppy, Tammy and Shiva.  If I can I will try and get into any garbage bin and destroy or eat the contents.  My favourite toy is a plastic kangaroo that squeaks and makes me go crazy.  I love to go on long walks with my mum.  I get very excited when I see other dogs as they don't come by our way very often.
