I would make very sure your cat has entropion in his eyes.
I just went thru a horrible situation with a rescue cat that a vet
told me had entropion. We use several vets with our TNR group.
I had this first vet who diagnosed it as entropion do the surgery.
I call him Dr. R.
A week later my favorite, well educated
vet, Dr L
was doing a wellness check on several of my new fosters
and looked at her eyes and said that isnt entropion. Dr L
arranged for me to go to a vet specialist in eyes and I was told the
same thing. This is not entropion. This surgery has done more damage
than good. They had to do reconstructive surgery on her eyes. The
vets told me entropion is common in dogs but not in cats. A lot of
vets that deal in general practise
misdiagnose it as entropion in cats
because they see so many dogs with a simular condition. But if they
looked into it a little deeper vets would realize entropion isnt common
in cats like it is with dogs.
4 surgeries later my cat is now good to go. But I feel so guilty for
causing it extra pain and extra surgeries it had to endure. She is such
a sweet quiet skiddish kitty. Thank goodness the vet specialist offered
to do it at cost for us. Please please please
get a second
opinion for this fine young fellow. He has definitely picked you to help him
You are his voice and helper in this situation. I dont want you to learn the
hard way like I had too. You are such a kind person to take this kitty
on and help him.
This is what White Sox looked like to repair the misdiagnosed eye problems
of entropion. She had over 30 stitches with placinta grafts in both her eyes.
