Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi, this is Doctor H and I'd be happy to assist you.
Has the eye ever opened or does it appear that there is tissue covering the eyelids where they would normally separate?
Do you happen to have any photos of it or can you take a photo and post it to chat?
You can submit it [email protected]
it is a cat that i am looking to buy and have fallen in love with, but i want to make sure i am not making a mistake
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX able to see the eye at all underneath? If so, does it look like a normal eye or an abnormal one?
Okay, and is this through a rescue, private owner or breeder?
its through a breeder, he was part of a litter of 6 and it looks like he acts completely normal
they said that it happens sometimes and in the last litter the mother had, one kitten had only 3 legs
Well I don't think it's a big deal but ideally a vet would want to close the rest of the eye
thank you so much for your help
So you may look into having the breeder covering that cost. You can always consult with a general practice veterinarian (as the surgery is not terribly difficult) or an ophthalmologist if you want to be absolutely sure.
Sure - do you have any other questions? Otherwise kindly rate my service so I may know how helpful I've been :)
ok will do so now
Well not to belabor the point, but poor diabetic regulation and subsequent elevated glucose levels decreases the immune response
