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.

Hi, my name is Milo, and I am a real character!  I love to steal just about anything and make my mommy and daddy chase me around to get it away from me.  My favorite thing to steal is daddy's hat...that really gets him going!  I love going for walks and meeting all the neighbourhood kids...they just love to pet me and say I'm very soft.  Swimming in Georgian Bay is another favorite thing to do.  I love chewing on all my different bones and dental chews.  Mommy says I can't have any more stuffed toys because I ruin them in about two minutes flat...too bad cause I really liked them.  I get to go for lots of car rides too, but have to wear my doggy seat belt!  My mommy has found a couple of small dog meetup groups for me to go and meet other little dogs to play with as I'm a little scared of bigger dogs.
