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.

Cheyenne: Thinks she is #1 in Papa Tim's eyes. Tolerates baths scared at first. She is a rescue dog left at on the road two boys picked her up and took her to the Vet. We were searching for a German Shepard and stopped at the Vet. Just luck brought her to us. She had won Tim over, she had a brother which was Black and Tan, I wanted him. We got home with her and called the Vet back as we wanted him also. Would have had them both fixed,but the Vet. decided to keep him. She took it kinda well about Angel (she to has a web page on here)being around for the time. But they both want and fight for Tim's attention. Usually gets it fits about him. Now kATie (she has her page on here also), she took well as she wanted to mother her. Very protective over kATie when Angel comes around. They all look up to Patsy (she has a page also), as she is the ruler of the house and will put them in their places real fast.
