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 Max . My most favorite thing to do is play in the snow. I just love to chase snowballs.I also love to nap on my mom and dads bed.
My most embarrsing moment ( I was just a pup) was getting my head caught in the dryer vent opening (it was out for repair) I was chasing my pal Bear the cat.He made it I didnt quite get all the way in. I thought the laughter would never stop.
I am very loved and a little spoiled ok a lot spoiled.
