Poor baby. At least you found it! Frankie wa sent home with a hood yesterday 
after his biopsy. He promptly removed it. He is blind so needs those whiskers 
to navigate. I am not sure what I will do as he is supposed to thave the hood 
on for 2 weeks!
BTW, that vet had no business washing her eyes without your permission, imo.

  Well I won't be taking Snowy in for spaying this coming week.  I went to clip 
her nails tonight and noticed that there was a big lump on her right paw.  When 
I touched it she meowed so I got her into the emergency vet.  They told me I 
did nothing wrong that this had happened to her over a very long period of 
time.  Her nail had grown into her skin, along with hair and they had to put 
her under and remove it.  It had grown far into her pad and couldn't be removed 
easily.  I don't get this.  She had seen 2 vets prior to our getting her and no 
one noticed this.  Now the poor little thing has to be on antibiotics 
(Clindamycin) and wear one of those horrible hood things so she won't lick her 
paw.  She had a piece taken out of it and cauterized.  I am so sorry for what 
this poor little dear has been through in her short life.  I just hope all this 
trauma doesn't cause her herpes virus to resurface.  The first thing the vet 
did when we got her there was to squirt eye wash into her eyes and she got all 
upset.  I kind of yelled at him for doing that and asked why.  He said she 
looks like she has allergies and I said "she's a persian their eyes tear".  
Fortunately there was a very knowledgeable technician present who seemed to 
know a lot more than this guy did.
