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 am a big goofy, momma's boy!! I like playing in my pool's durning the summer, but I only like water when I SAY!! Shower's are awful!! I don't "drink" my water like normal dogs, I bite at it until I have gotten enough, then carry about a 1/2 cup to a full cup around the house/backyard, usually dumped on dad's lap. I love playing in the mud with my sister, well playing at all with her. However being she is smaller then me, she has A LOT more stamina then me. My favorite thing is sitting half on mom's lap getting and ear rub, I moan and groan when she does it, not so much for dad. My feelings get hurt easily and I pout if they do. Mom has a soft spot for it most of the time ;o). and I know it. I don't get to see mom often enough(she has this thing called a job) and I try to block her from leaving for work some morning's. All and all I am great boy, except for the accidnets at night-I am locked in all night what am I supposed to do.
