Horner's Syndrome

This forum is for cat lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your cat.

His pupils are nearly equal as of today. He is going to get "laser Therapy" for his ear problem. It is experimental and so we will see what happens.

He is much much better and that is huge!

Hooray for Oliver's friend!! I'm so happy the poor guy is getting better. Polyp surgery is not too terrible. I have had 2 taken out of my eustachain tube in addition to the big surgery for the one in my inner ear. Right now Mommy has to watch me for the first year in case I grow another but so far so good. If they get it all out, that kitty will feel a whole lot better. Mine were just "plucked" from under my soft palate though for the smaller surgeries. No lasers.

I had laser surgery on my left ear in October and it went really well. I didn't have very much pain at all after the surgery and everything healed up really nicely. I hope your friend's surgery goes as well as mine did!

Did the laser therapy help?

i am a vet tech and we have a cat with horners that is caused by an ear infection.
I am considering laser therapy to reduce inflammation

Mika's surgery did fix his Horner's Syndrome, but the growth they removed from his ear turned out to be a ceruminous gland tumor (also known as an ear wax tumor). Earlier this year the tumor came back, but Mika's kidneys weren't working well enough to have surgery again. He went to the bridge in June. Please do whatever you can to stop the inflammation in your kitty's ears because chronic inflammation can lead to cancer.

I had a cat (before Tia came along) that had Horner’s Syndrome. Sadly, he developed cancer, too. I decided it was kindest to have him euthanized. You need to try to stop the inflammation at all costs!
