About a month ago I noticed that my cat couldn't focus properly and her eyes looked strange, I took her to a vet that she had been to occasionally, she is now 10 years old.
The vet said she may have a tooth problem, but didn't say anything about her eyes.
I then saw that her pupils were becoming totally dilated and somehow I knew she was blind suddenly. I then took her to an ophthalmologist the vet recommended. She said that Misty was blind, which was really amazing and we couldn't figure out how or why this happened. We then searched around for an answer at different vets, they kept saying everything about her is healthy, heart, lungs etc. But, she developed this bump on her nose and it continued to get bigger and a lot of wheezing noise developed so I continued with the most recent vet, and they took out a tooth, gave her eye drops, Clavamox, Prednisone, and some liquid to put in the food
, can't remember the name, and this has continued for 3 weeks. They also took one tooth out and a biopsy which came back to today with the result Lymphoma. Which I believe is feline leukemia. How did she get this awful illness, and does it affect the eyes, and now we have to decide to put her to sleep tomorrow morning. Is there anything else we can do? She is a beautiful silver grey cat, so sweet and gentle and of course we don't want her to suffer.
I thought I would check in the you, as I could learn a little more, so I can protect my other cats. I have quite a few. Thank you very much for any help and advice you can give us.
