    Poor girl. Keep us posted. I've never dealt with an eye injury before. She has a good mama.

    So. Doesn't seem to be an infection since it's only in one eye. They put stain in to see if there was a scratch, but there was nothing, no scratch or foreign debris. Then they did an eye pressure check to rule out glaucoma. Both eyes were in the normal pressure range but the affected eye was on the very low side and the non affected eye was on the higher side. So that means no glaucoma but some other irritation affecting the pressure. So there is no for sure diagnosis, she thinks it was injured but not a deep enough scratch to show with the stain or a scratch in a place she couldn't see. She gave us steroid/antibiotic drops to reduce any swelling and prevent any secondary infection. Should be all gone within a week.

    Me too - but I love these threads where there's a problem, feedback and a solution/happy resolution all in one reading. I wish all threads were like that! Happy endings, you know?

    Glad it's nothing serious!

    Maybe it's an eyelash irritating her eye..we have others here who have had that problem. Hope she continues to improve..

    I was going to suggest the eyelash thing also. Orion had an eyelash that was irritating her. I took her to one vet, they did a stain...nothing. So, a few days later I took her to another vet...sure enough. She had eyelashes scratching her eye and now her eye was ulcerated. To make matters worse, the drops the first vet gave me (neo/poly/dex) has a steroid in it and steroids exacerbate ulcers!

    It's been since September..that's the last time she went in and had another eyelash removed. Just this morning I was tickling her and she sat up and swiped her paw across her eye. I'm hoping this doesn't continue...or it will be back to the dr!
