Eye Surgeries for Roy and Mabel

May was a month for eye surgeries at the shelter!

Roy, a big Cane Corso dog, arrived at the shelter with a case of cherry eyes.  Dogs have a third eyelid called the nictitating membrane, and a cherry eye occurs when it becomes prolapsed and bulges outside the eye.  The condition is very uncomfortable and leads to a host of long-term issues.  Surgery is needed to correct it, and thankfully we were able to get his eyes fixed, and now he’s available for adoption!

Mabel, a sweet little Pug, was having a very bad day when she arrived at the shelter.  Her left eye had ruptured and was beyond saving.  We sent her to a specialist who removed the eye.  Mable is now feeling *much* better and is no longer in pain.

The Volunteers of the Burbank Animal Shelter would like to say a big thank you to Veterinary Eye Clinic and Media City Animal Hospital.  Thank you so much for helping Roy and Mabel!

We also want to say a *tremendous* thank you to our donors who made these surgeries possible.  Life-changing surgeries like these are only possible due to your generosity, and we cannot thank you enough.  Because of you, Roy, Mabel, and other animals needing special care can get a second chance.    Thank you so much.  We couldn’t do it without you!
