1. "Cherry Eye" is defined as a prolapse of the gland of the third eyelid. The medical term is glandular hypertrophy. In dogs with Cherry Eye, the prolapsed gland is red and fleshy. It looks like a small cherry that suddenly pops up and protrudes from the corner of the eye. If one eye is affected, the other eye may or may not also be affected at a later date.
Dogs with Cherry Eye are usually less than a year old. In addition to the redness and swelling, a clear or mucus discharge may also occur.
2. The term "Dry Eye" describes changes that occur in the eye resulting from a lack of tears.
DRY EYE (Keratoconjunctivitis sicca).
Tears supply the cornea with oxygen and nutrients; therefore they are essential to keep the cornea healthy. If the cornea is deprived of oxygen and food because of a lack of tear film, destructive changes occur quickly, leading to a condition called Dry Eye. The cornea can become pigmented, scarred, and ulcerated. Partial vision loss can also result.
The eyes of dogs with Dry Eye burn and sting all the time just like ours do on a windy day.
Diagnosis is made by a tear test that measures how many tears the eye produces in one minute. In this case, low levels of tear production are detected.
~ Add some coconut water in with goats milk or coconut milk and see if they will drink it. If not add to daily meals. As coconut water is even better than an IV for hydration, it balances the electrolytes (celtic salt) and restores moisture where it is needed in the body.
~ Epson Salt warm compressions just mix the Epson salts with hot water and soak a washcloth in it and rinse it out there is no salt as it dissolves in the hot water and hold on the cyst until cool and do as many times as you can a day, recommendation of twice a day for about a week.
Example for humans, cattle and other species: mixed 1 cup of Epsom salt with 1 cup of hot water and soaked a washcloth in it and put it over eyes.
3. Keratoconjunctivitis has been known to be a deficiency of the vitamin Biotin, resulting in the conjunctiva of the eyes. The immunity of the affected animal will be lowered and defects in B and T cells will occur.
The deficiency in the cells reduces the cell count, and consequently, the ability to fight against the invasion of harmful bacteria or a virus is substantially reduced.
HIGHLY beneficial to add the Biotin Powder (or crushed tablet approx. 200mg - 300mg).
Plus the mineral Zinc Picolinate tablet (crushed) daily in meals, for a med to large animal. Half the amount for smaller pets.
4. What is chalazion cyst (bump)?
Chalazion may be described as a bump that usually is located around the rim of a dogs eyelid. In some cases chalazion may be caused by the meibomian gland and a gland close to the eyelid, becoming stopped up. Usually, this is from discharge from a gland known as the sebaceous gland; this gland makes an oily matter. This oily matter typically helps a dogs eye close properly and may help leaking of tear on a dogs face. Chalazion may be more commonly found in older dogs verse younger dogs. Sometimes a vet may call it Chalazion when in fact it can be a fungal infection. It may be possible that the dog could have an underlying infection of some type. It may not be the main cause of the bump on the eyelid.
