Hi, I'm Dr. Gregg. I will try to help you today. Two female cats that are fighting? That can be tough one. First thing I would do is get them spayed so you remove the hormone stress between them. Next I would try something called "Feliway". This is a synthetic pheromone that helps to calm kitties down. It comes in a "plug in diffuser" kind of like a "Glade plug in room freshener" except it fills the room with kitty calming pheromones. You can find this at many veterinary clinics or pet stores/online pet supply sitesSome cats will never get along with each other, but with spaying and the feliway diffusers, you have a good chance of reducing aggression. If there are still problems after you take those steps you may have to have your Vet look at them and prescribe, any of a number of medications, to help calm them down. Hopefully this helps. If you have further questions, just ask. Dr. Gregg

do you know if the vet performed a fluorescine stain test to make sure Pancho didn't have a corneal ulcer in the eye?

When you mean the other eye doesn't seem right do you mean it's staring off in the other direction than the normal eye? How are the pupils? are they the same size or is one bigger than the other?
