Hi everyone, I'm visiting Arkansas, and have gotten to spend some time with Ember, which has been great. We took her to the vet on Friday. Her wbc had gone up slightly from the low of her last appointment (she's at 3.39, but was at 3.11).
Unfortunately, her anisocoria seems worse. The pupil in her left eye has been "open" to probably 75-80% of its full size for almost four years now, but over the last few days, I've noticed that it's now almost fully open. The vet looked in with a light, and she said that Ember's eye seems to be healthy (the blood vessels are undamaged, and she doesn't have a detached retina). However, she's concerned about it enough that she's suggested we consider an appointment with an ophthalmologist. None in town, so it would be an hour and a half drive. The vet mentioned that Ember could have a fungal infection, which concerned me. Ember has been sneezing some, though she seems much better today. The vet said that the ophthalmologist could determine more with a gentle procedure, while the vet herself would have to remove the eye to be sure and to treat. I may be mixing some things up, as it was all a little shocking. The vet has been extremely helpful with Ember. I could not ask for a better doctor. Does anyone have any experience with FeLV+ (or other immuno-compromised) cats and fungal infections? _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
