Anisocoria can be an indicator of FeLV presence, though I don’t think it indicates progression of the disease in any way that we know about. Ember developed anisocoria almost five years ago, when she was seven. I haven’t taken her to a specialist, but we ruled out toxo. At times, the vet has thought that the pupil has gotten a bit smaller, but I’ve never seen a real change.
