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.

My pet hamster was a great friend, he was a remarkable pet and lived a very happy and healthy life. The thing I remember best about Oscar is how he begged for treats, he did this so cute that you couldn't resist rewarding him with a sunflower seed or banana chip. I'll always have happpy memories of Oscar and I know that every time I think of Oscar it's because he's thinking of me too. I love you Oscar, you are the greatest. I hope you are happy in Hamster Heaven.
