Izzy with an Eye

May 23, 2012

Izzy has an eye problem.

We don’t know what caused it. She just suddenly woke up Saturday morning with a squinty eye. Given that she never has eye issues, I took her to the vet. After a quick exam to determine that she didn’t have any scratches on her eye and to confirm that her eye was red and slightly swollen, I was sent home with antibiotic eye gel.

That should have been the end of it, right?

Of course not. This is one of my animals.

Five days into treatment, the eye was still clearly bothering her. So, with eye-squinting kitty in tow, I headed back to the vet.

Squinty right eye — it is getting better, but it’s still not great:

Of course, Izzy’s favorite place in the vet’s office is the same place all the cats like to lay — the scale:

Next steps now are to watch it without any medicine and see if it heals on its own. We think the gel might have bothered her on top of what else is already going on with her eye. If it’s not better by Friday, I have to pick up a new ointment to try. Knowing Izzy, I’ll be making my third trip to the vet in a week. 🙂
