Twenty two pups (Neopolitan Mastiff, 18; Lhasa Apso, 2 and Cocker Spaniel 2) aged from 2 to 4 months were refered at Nandini Veterinary Hospital, Surat with complaint of red follicular mass protruding from inner canthus of eye were diagnosed for prolapse of gland of third eyelid (cherry eye) and were surgically operated for repositioning of the gland by modified Morgan's pocket/imbrication technique. In 90.90% (20/22) pups showed normal recovery within 8 to 10 days. In 2 cases (9.1%) prolapse of the gland recurred on 6th/7th day repositioning and therefore gland was removed. No other complication was observed and recovery was uneventful.
