Purrs for Cookie

Cookie is in the emergency clinic and spent the night there.



He developed a complication following a routine procedure, which could leave him permanently blind.

Yesterday, Cookie went into our vet clinic to have his teeth cleaned. He is an older cat and his vet felt that bacteria in his mouth could affect his heart. He had tests for blood, heart and kidney function the day before as a routine check up. His kidneys are responding well to his daily supplement which is good news.

However, he was put under anesthesia for the cleaning and was doing well following this, but sometime later it was discovered that he could not see probably due to a blood clot or sometimes it is because of lack of oxygen. He did so well on his tests, that this was not considered a risk and his vet clinic had never ever had such a case before. So he is getting oxygen therapy and he is not very happy. It is possible he my regain his sight, we of course are hoping for that. In the meantime, we are trying to get him eating and drinking. His is a smart cat and knows he is in trouble and loudly expresses his frustration.

Today we are taking him from the overnight emergency clinic and returning him to the vet clinic and hoping for some good news.

I know a cat that went blind after his neutering but regained some sight - it never affected his being able to get around and do things - cats are very adaptable. Sending purrs that all will be well for Cookie!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We have only just read this - we are so sorry to hear about Cookie's eyes - we hope his sight will return quickly. Cats are very good at adapting one of mum's before cats went blind due to bad kidneys and she got about well in her garden and home.

We are purring for you Cookie...hope your sight will come back to you.

Devon came home with a damaged tail from his dental...it wouldn't move at all, just hung limp behind him. It took about 4 days for it to get back to normal, with some anti-inflammatory drugs. They felt he developed a clot too. We purr your complication will resolve like Devon's did.
