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.

For 17 years you were my best friend and my only child.

The wet nose at dawn, packed lunch for two, our evening strolls, your warm belly on my feet, having an ice-cream and choicing the best fruit and all the other things will never be the same.

I have half an apple and the other half is still for you, even though my eye well up with tears these thought make me happy.

Thank you old mate for the best years and memories of my life.

I miss you.
