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.

 First of all don't let my size scare you.  I am the least scary dog I've ever met. I don't like to be bathed or get my ears cleaned. I do however love to go for walks and to get my ribs rubbed. I also enjoy getting brushed.  My favourite food is pizza.  I love to see the pizza dude coming up the driveway although he always seems a bit hesitant when he sees me waiting for him at the door. I love wintertime. All that snow to plow through. I don't mind summer I get to go on longer walks. I have lots of dog friends to get together with. My two neighbours Toby and Bailey who are golden retriever. My friend buddy also a golden retriever who I can drop in on during the summer. There's also my friend from Michigan a basset hound called Smokey who visits me when he's here on vacation. Thank you for visiting my site I think I'll go do one of my other favourite things, take a nap.     WOOF.
