My eyes

I've developed another brown spot in my left eye. My regular vet had wanted Mom to call if she noticed any changes, so she called the other day and tentatively scheduled me for a Friday morning appointment. However, Mom get a message on her machine from my vet when she got home from work tonight. After getting Mom's message, she feels I should be referred to a veterinary ophthalmologist for evaluation. Mom had been thinking that wouldn't be a bad idea anyway. So, Mom is supposed to call my vet back tomorrow to let them know how she wants to proceed. Not sure when my ophthalmology appointment will be yet. It will be the same place Mom took Linus to for dermatology... and it was somewhat difficult to get in. Will let you know how it goes... Oh, and if you are curious, the last picture in my photo album shows the original spot in my eye.

The ophthalmologist sounds like a really good idea. Purring that you get a good prognosis.

I hope you can get in to see the ophthalmologist right away, Rider, so you and your Mom will know what's going on with the spots. We're purring for a good prognosis for you, too - hopefully, it's nothing to worry about health-wise.

I'm glad you're getting in soon, Rider! The basic exam really isn't that bad so don't be worried about it. Getting drops in my eyes was probably the worst part, but that was over in a couple seconds. I'll keep purring for you!
