A Clinical Case from the Archives : 21/03/2005

What is this red mass at this guinea pig’s medial canthus? Can you think of a similar condition in dogs whjich might give you a clue?

This guinea pig has what cavy fanciers know as flesh eye. To tell you the truth we don’t know exactly what the tissue involved it – the cavies aren’t bothered by it so removal doesn’t exactly seem ethical, just to satify our intellectual curiosity! But this dog has a prolapsed gland of the third eyelid so we think its probably the same condition. Do let me know if you’ve had the opportunity to do histopath on one of these please!
