Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, My name is Terri.It is my pleasure to assist you today!I am reviewing your question right now and will reply in a few minutes.
Hi. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about this situation with your girl. Can I ask some questions to get some more information? How old is she? Did your vet talk about more imaging studies to try and get more information about what is going on?
Sorry for my delay as I stepped away from my computer there. If there is a tumor / growth behind the globe (eye), the term given to that is a retrobulbar mass. Sometimes an infection can happen behind the eye and it is called a retrobulbar abscess. Both of these conditions can cause an eye to start to protrude forward from its normal positioning. More information as to the cause can be obtained by having an MRI / CT scan done to see what all is involved. Did your vet talk about further diagnostics that are available? Would you pursue further diagnostics and possible therapy if options were given?
