Unfortunately the other day Marmalade scratched his eye. Chris Poole, his human dad, explains to us how the day went:
“I’m 99% sure it was on the popcorn ceiling in our closet when he squeezed on top of a box and scrambled to get to the other side and 20 mins later it was obviously irritating him.
We went to the vet the same day, they flushed out his eye and then stained it which helped detect the scrape on the surface of his right eye…. Luckily the scrape isn’t anything serious and he’s responding well to the eye drops we have to give him every 12 hours for the next two weeks.
As you can see he needs to wear an e-collar to prevent him from rubbing his eye and making it any worse and his right pupil will be dilated like this until after his treatment is finished.”
If you think your kitty has scratched his eye, be sure to take him to the vet immediately.
