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 Nanook, but I'm affectionately know as "Nookie Monster", and boy, does the monster part ever fit!

My favorite pastime is foraging for socks and paper towels, but I also love to snack on rocks, bark and concrete chips. Oh... and those tasty lil mushrooms that are all over in the grass!
My mommy puts this thing over my nose and mouth so I can't open it when I go outside now :(

I love going for walks and going to school to play with my friends and I LOVE to kiss on my older brother!
