SOFISTICATED40SUMTHIN posted:
MY BEAUTIFUL 9YR OLD CAT WAS RECENTLY TAKEN TO THE VET FOR A SWOLLEN EYE. SHE SAYS ITS POSSIBLY A BITE OR CYST. ANTIBIOTICS WERE GIVEN AND SHE TRIED TO SEE IF SHE COULD DRAIN IT BUT COULDNT. SAYS ITS DRIED UP BLOOD AND POSSIBLE INFECTION? IM TO PUT VERY WARM COMPRESS AND TRY TO SQUEEZE IT MYSELF. TODAY IS DAY 3 SINCE THE VISIT WITH A TOTAL OF 7-8 DAYS TOTAL OF HIS EYE BEING SWOLLEN, BUT TODAY THE SWELLING SEEMS DIFFERENT, AS IF IT DROPPED AND NOW HE CANT SEE FROM THAT EYE BECAUSE OF THE SWELLING. IM SO CONCERN.

Drew Weigner, DVM, ABVP responded:
Without seeing him, it's hard to tell what's going on but there's one imperative thing to consider: if this isn't resolved quickly, he risks losing the sight in that eye and possibly the eye itself. Ask your veterinarian to refer you to a board certified veterinary ophthalmologist as soon as possible. There's likely one in your area.
