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.

While living in Colorado Springs, I was looking for a new pet.  I went to the human society page and found a section for senior citizens.  If you were low income and a senior citizen, they would pay half your adoption fee and give you a $400 allowance to support the dog each year. 
I went down and applied.  They showed me several dogs that were on the program.  I met Fritz and fell in love.  He is the best dog.  He was already house broken; crate trained, and loves to sleep with me in the bed.  He absolutely loves everyone, especially children.  My one year old grandson pulls and loves on him all the time.
