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 the eldest of 3 dogs in my human family. I am already 12 years old and still keen on chasing squirrels and bossing my little brothers around. I am happiest when both of my humans are home with me. I love to watch movies with my dad but watching intence movies with my mom gets me stressed. I don't like to see her cry or tence up. What I do like is when she says, "In the car." and " Vien manger.". I am friendly and reserved.
