Abstract

An eight year old, Dobermann dog was brought with the history of having a mass in the left eye and was treated by a local veterinarian without any improvement.  On clinical examination a small reddish mass in the left third eyelid, congested bulbar and palpebral conjunctiva were noticed. Under general anaesthesia, third eyelid extraction was performed in the left third eyelid as a surgical treatment of choice and the mass was confirmed as squamous cell carcinoma on histopathological examination.
