Prolapse of the third eyelid occurs most commonly in dogs. The purpose of this paper was to describe the surgery reduction of everted, ectopic cartilage and prolapse of the third eyelid in a family of three Basset Hounds, in order to reposition it in anatomical position. All of these dogs presented third eyelid congenital anomalies, and one of them had a relapse after first surgery was done. A family of three Basset Hounds, two female and one male, six months old, presented at the Ophthalmology Department of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Bucharest. All three patients presented very thin and in excess conjunctiva on the outer surface of the third eyelid and ectopic everted cartilage. One patient had previously surgical correction and had a relapse of prolapsed third eyelid. We used combined surgical techniques for each patient. While in the first two patients the surgical correction of the everted cartilage was performed approaching the conjunctiva on the outer surface of the third eyelid, in the third one the approach was done on the inner surface. After surgery the local treatment consisted in tobramycin and dexamethasone collyre three times a day, for 10-14 days. As a conclusion, the surgery correction is different in every case and depends on the breed; the techniques could be combined in order to performe the surgery.
