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 love to sleep with my owners and play this game where I grab a stuffed animal or toy and run around the living room and I  love to chew their littlest pet shops.I also like to chase their cats and play fight with their other dog. I always splash my water around the kitchen. My favourite moment was when my new owners adpted me from the humane society in Kitchener. I hate rice crackers and find it hard to eat grapes. Once, it took me 10 tries to eat a grape.
