Meet the UK's saddest dog who couldn't stop crying before she underwent life-changing surgery.

Due to multiple eye problems, 11-month-old Great Dane Eve was suffering from badly affected vision but she- now has a new lease of life following specialist surgery to save her sight.

As a result of several eyelid conditions, Eve was constantly weeping.

Her owners Deborah Noakes and Justin Finning took their partially-sighted puppy to an animal hospital after they grew about her quality of life.

UK's saddest puppy was 'extremely uncomfortable' before life-changing surgery

Vets at Linnaeus-owned Eastcott Veterinary Referrals in Swindon, Wiltshire were able to restore Eve's eyesight following a careful operation.

Following the operation, Eve can now see again and is back home recovering with her owners who fostered and adopted her from National Great Dane Rescue.

Deborah, of Devizes, Wiltshire said: “Eve was extremely uncomfortable and her eyesight was being affected, but her quality of life has massively improved since her operation at Eastcott.

“She is much happier in her skin and so much more confident now she has full vision."

Eve had been suffering with multiple eyelid problems, one of which was causing chronic tear overflow and a painful right eye.

She was born with large eyelid openings which had caused her lower right eyelid to turn inward, resulting in corneal irritation and inflammation.

As a result, this caused blood vessels to grow into her cornea and the surface to pigment while a prolapsed third eyelid gland was so large it blocked some of her vision.

Ida Gilbert, who is head of ophthalmology at Eastcott Veterinary Referrals, led the intricate operation.

Ida said: “Eve came to us with a chronically prolapsed third eyelid gland in her right eye.

"It was so large that it blocked a large proportion of her visual field in front of her and the tear film was not being spread normally, reducing the protection of the eye.

“Other conditions were causing irritation, inflammation and chronic tear overflow.

“Eve had surgery to protect and reposition the prolapsed gland in the right eye. This is important as the gland produces 30 to 50 per cent of the tears for the eye.

“Additionally, all eyelids were shortened by 5mm, she had entropion surgery and the leading edge of the abnormal third eyelid cartilage was remodelled.

"It had become distorted due to the length of time the gland had been prolapsed, before she was rescued.

“It’s great to hear Eve is recovering well in her new forever home, where she gets to live with four other Great Danes.”
