Gillian is a 3 year old Corgi mix that was recently returned to us. Her former owner had her for over 2 years, but unfortunately a family member developed allergies to dogs, so they decided to surrender her back to us.

Gillian has been living with double prolapsed glands, also known as "cherry eye", a condition that can be corrected with surgery. Unfortunately, the surgery is costly, so we need your help! Please consider making a donation so that we can get the proper surgery that she needs.

What is "cherry eye"?

"Cherry eye" is most commonly associated with a congenital weakness of the gland's attachment in the dog's eye. When the gland of the third eyelid pops out of position, it protrudes from behind the eyelid as a reddish mass.

Despite its appearance, "cherry eye" itself is not a painful condition. However, the longer the tear gland is exposed, the more likely it will come irritated and inflamed. If the dog rubs at the eye, it could cause the gland to bleed or become infected. Furthermore, the function of the tear gland could become compromised if the gland is exposed for long periods of time. 

Surgery is not just for cosmetics! The gland of the third eyelid plays an important role in maintaining normal tear production. If left untreated, the dog will have eye problems later on.


Gillian is looking for her forever home!
