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 Keiko, I'm a smart and extremely affectionate dog. I am very dependant of my owners and I love being around people, especially children. I never bark, but I do bark when I know my owners are upset with me,( it's my way of telling them off). I love the snow, but I can't wait to try out our swimming pool in the summer. My life wouldn't be the same without my brother, Max, a golden retriever, and my older sister Buffy, a spitz-poo.
