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, Buckwheat, am the best pal that anyone could ask for. I am loyal, friendly, and downright adorable! My favorite spot is under the computer desk, warming my Papa's feet. My favorite time of day is puppy dinner time and I will do anything to hang on to my favorite toy. I have a new little sister, Pfeifen, that sometimes drives me crazy, but we get along pretty well most of the time (when she's not chewing on my tail!). I love going in the truck and I am always excited to go for walks in the park. My Papa is my best friend, and Mom is always there when I need a hug, Pfeifen is not so bad either.
