Vet Diary - Duke's Dilemma

When the gorgeous Labradoodle came into our centre as a stray, he had so much hair over his eyes that you could hardly see them at all. However, peering past the "curtain" to say hello, a strange pink swelling became evident in the corner of his eye.

Thankfully in this case our vet Allison was able to successfully replace the gland, ensuring that his tear production keeps his eye moist and hopefully avoids further problems in the future.
