Pupils are still dialated
This is my first time to this chat...please bare with me
Two days ago I took my cat in for what was supposed a routine dental cleaning. He is 12 and was a diabetic (but we changed his diet and he was only on insulin for 3 months -- all is well in that area).
Apparently the Vet said he had a bad reaction to a standard medication (not the anasthesia) used in dental procedures. She had never seen anything like it...his temp. spiked, he began open mouth panting...they took x-rays of his heart and lungs, iced and wet him down to get his temp. to drop..kept him in over night and we were finally able to take him home.
He appeared out of it due to the sedatives etc. his eating habits appear normal, he's very mellow (but was extremely stressed so I would assume this is to be expected, and he is pretty laid back to begin with) but for some reason his pupils are STILL dialated. His eyes look black -- with light or without.
Does anyone know anythign about this? I told the Vet and she said she had never heard of this before -- but could be because most people may not notice a thing like that and just report their cats as being fine after a procedure. Am I just being paranoid? While I think she is a great Vet, I am extremely hesitant to bring him back in...he seems to be a-typical in all areas (for ex. he has an extremely low thyroid..very unusual in a cat apparently and no one can tell me why but as it has never really seemed to afect him...I'm told not to worry).
Now a routine procedure turns into THIS. Any advice...thanks!
