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.

coco was a rescue. He was a very intelligent dog. I had two cats who he protected. They both shared their food bowls. He had very keen hearing, with slightest sound he was at the door guarding his house. He had such an appepite he liked everything.

Terriers are diggers, I found it funny when I sat on my sofa I felt something hidden in the sofa, I found his milkbones very deep in the sofa where he knew it was. when i looked into his big brown eyes i knew he had a soul. he was so mysterious, i will always love him. i hope he is a good boy in heaven and he is digging into the dirt ground to bury his treats. RIP my sweet love. mommy lydia
