Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Do her pupils change size when you shine a light in them?
Are you seeing a sudden haze in the back of the eye?
Does she appear blind (this can be tricky to tell sometimes but often dropping a cotton ball to see if they can see it can help you determine this?
Do you think it is pain or confusion that is triggering her meow?
