Eye Check update


Well they are back at home.  Took a while because the clinic Dr apparently had to do emergency bladder surgery.  Kinda a bummer on my end because I didn't bring lunch with me to work because I figured I'd run out at lunch time and pick them up if they had to stay this morning (which they did) or if they could have come right home with me I could have packed up lunch then.  I should remember that "shelter time" is so very different from "working in the real world" time.. (not that there is anything wrong with that - unless you happen to be on and need to stay in "working in the real world" time)

Turns out that it is a puncture wound.  Could be something that happened prior to his coming to the house to stay, or it could have been the result of his rubbing his eye with his paw (that has claws) with the application of terramycin because apparently that stings.

He is now on a plain old tri-optic ointment and he has a recheck in a week. Hopefully it will heal right up with out a scar.

Fleurp will tell him that if it does scar, that it's no big deal.

  2. I agree with Fluerp--it's ok if you aren't perfect. It's what's inside that matters most!

  3. Oui Oui did something like that to er eye about a month ago. Blunt force trauma to her cornea. We hope it will be ok. Its really scary looking! We hope it heals quickly!

  4. We think that the drops should definitely help, especially since it's caught early.

  5. With eyes, its always better to get it checked right away...depending on what the issue is, it is VERY important to get the cat started on the CORRECT eye treatment..... just few words of wisdom of my own experience and observation.

  6. You are right, eye issues are very important to check out as soon as possible. As soon as I realized I was looking at something new (and not just swollen conjunctiva) I reported it. I've been very lucky that none of my fosters have lost eyes, but too many of the shelter kittens have. A friend of mine adopted one, and you saw another in a previous post.. (who is doing beautifully btw, I saw them when I picked up Simon and Schewie)

  7. awwww - we are sure it will heal up in no time. Mo has a corneal scar and is fine with it - so no big deal either way... :)
