: Mom just shared this information on Facebook. It is
: easier to share what she wrote:
: Spunky was sedated around 11:45am in order for Dr. B.
: to get a good look at his eye. His eyelids are
: inflamed and she couldn't get a good look otherwise.
: She assessed that his eyeball has shrunken and it
: appears that there is a bit of cloudiness on the
: cornea. She is not 100% sure that the eye has ruptured
: AND there is a possibility that surgery won't be
: necessary. Dr. B. feels that this was caused by feline
: herpes and not cancer. That's where my gut is leading
: me, too. She will leave her notes for Dr. R. to read
: in the morning and he will assess the situation.
: Spunky will be boarded there at least through Saturday
: morning. I asked for this because I know he will get
: his pain meds and antibiotic on a set schedule. Also,
: they know how to handle a strong bodied, difficult to
: medicate cat.
: I am going out-of-town on Monday and won't be home
: until late Tuesday evening. If possible, I will leave
: Spunky with them until Wednesday morning. Normally no
: one is there on Sunday to care for borders so I may
: have to bring him home on Saturday. If that is the
: case, I'll have to board him at Almost Home. He will
: get his meds there.
: I will know more about the surgery situation after Dr.
: R. looks at Spunky tomorrow.
