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 four years olds and still live with my Dad, Caesar. We also have three humans. I sleep either in my kennel or on the bed with one of my humans. I love to run and my favorite pastime is playing with my rope bone. Second favorite activity is going down to the river park and visiting with all the other dogs, well most of them. My least favorite time is having a bath. (If God had meant for Shepherds to get wet he would have made us retreivers.) The only good thing about the bath is I get to sing, but only if I have an audience.
