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 got him form a cruel owner. He loves  me and protects me to this day. He is very loving. He's smart and know a bunch of commands.  He is the best dog I ever had and would hate to lose him. I would never sell him to anyone. All that bull I've heard about pit bulls are not even true. Like that one, " You stare him in the eyes he will snap" He never has. He just jumps up and gives me sloppy kisses. I don't belive in any of those pit bull miths. The only reason he would turn on you is if you hurt him, any dog would even a beagle. He got attacked by another pit bull once and we nearly lost him. He has been weary of other pit bulls ever since. He protected me against one  one time. He was trying to defend himself because he did not attack until the other pit bull started to attack. He kept him off me and ran him off but, stayed on the sidewalk. He ran behind him till he was sure he was not gonna go back and try to attack me agian.  He walked back to me and looked back from time to time to make sure he wasn't coming back.
