Haw's syndrome

Haw’s syndrome is a relatively common problem in cats. It is a condition where both third eyelids protrude (or prolapse). Protrusion of the third eyelids can occur for many reasons in cats. When it has a sudden onset, and is associated with diarrhea or other gut conditions, it is called Haw’s syndrome.
