@Pokemon:  I’m so sorry you have to go through this! Anytime my kitties are hurt or not acting right it breaks my heart.  Hopefully you won’t be going back to that vet.  Not sure how the vet managed to give the wrong medication, but thankfully he still has his sight.  I’m sure he’ll work around it and be the awesome kitty he probably is 🙂

im sure this is obvious but you brought him back to the vet, right? One of my old dogs got a reticular ulcer from being bitten in the eye and he had to have his eye stitched closed for a few weeks (I had to put ointment on it and he had to wear the cone of shame!)  Apparently it’s exceptionally painful but if it gets infected they can lose the eye!

@Pokemon:  Heya, that looks like the beginning of a wall eye – the animal will be able to see but it might stay a weird milky colour. Just my guess.

 

Go to a different vet. I have had two incidents similar to this, my riding horse got snake venom spat into his eye (joys of Africa) and a rescue horse I am looking after developed an ulcer in an eye that was already a wall eye – she treated the infection and then she did plasma treatment – where she used the animal’s own plasma to help heal the eye. It sounds very Dr Frankenstein but it has helped, so ask a vet about it?

 

There is a vet on the Bee somewhere, but I don’t know her handle.

 

Good luck 🙂

@Pokemon:  Ahhh great! Our rescue with the wall eye also had zero pain or discomfort, goodness knows what trauma caused it – it was before he came into our care. You sound like you are on the right path and doing everything you can – well done. Here is for hoping that your kitty gets better in leaps and bounds.
