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 name is Mira Gardiner.  My parents found me with a rescue organization and drove all the way to Syracuse to get me. I used to live in a Puppy Mill, but I was saved.  I had alot of health problems even though I am only three.  I am in perfect health now.  I learned to do my business outside very quickly, and I love to play with my family.  My favourite place to sleep is on my mom's lap or right beside her. I love my daddy, too though.  He is the one who bathes me.  I don't like getting baths but I get stinky and tangley if I don't.   At night I sleep in bed with my mom and dad.  I like to sleep in the middle, right in between them, so I can get all the cuddles.  When I get sad or nervous I cry and my face gets wet.  I love to play outside and play with my rope bones.  My sister is Brandi and I have two big brothers, Duke and Perry. I love my family and they love me because they tell me all the time.  Mom says I'm going to get a new brother or sister puppy pretty soon.  Thanks for stopping by to see me!!
