Customer Question

He is keeping one eye closed. It is red around the edges. I put cat eye rinse in it but he isn't really opening it. My cat is on phenobarbital for seizures. He is about 4 years old.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Max
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Max?
Customer: This has happened of and on for about a week or so. No other problems with him. My favorite cat. This time he isn't opening eye after rinse. Last time he did open it after rinse.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
