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 name is Shadow, I was adopted on the 18th of october 2002, my previous owners were'nt so nice to me so sometimes I'm a bit scared and shy until I learn to trust you. I'm a well behaved dog and like all labradors im am very affectionate and love lots of attention. I like to play chase with my pal Tyson he is a german shepheard, when we are been good mum gives us raw yummy chops...hmm chops, i see her sneak them out of the people fridge and my tail frantically swings side to side so fast as i think "yes yes yes yes yes". life is great when your a dog!
