In the video below you will see a cherry eye repair technique by The Vet Surgery Channel.
“Cherry eye” is a disorder of the third eyelid, or nictitating membrane, that presents in dogs and cats. Most often it can be seen in young dogs under the age of 2.
Cherry eye is a result of prolapsing and protruding of the gland from the eye and shows as a red and fleshy mass.
This condition is not painful, but it can dry out and be the cause of external trauma from scratching. This can lead to secondary inflammation and infection.
If this condition is not treated surgically, it can lead to “dry eye syndrome” and other possible complications.
