Hi this is DR J and I would be happy to help you. I understand that they may not get all the edges but her eye still needs to be removed as soon as possible. Once her eye is out, all the pain will be gone. Even if the mass is malignant, the best possible course for her is to remove the eye and as much of the mass as possible and the sooner the better. If she is not eating then you need to take her to an ER where they can give her some fluids and I would recommend some oral Buprenex to bring home for pain until she can have surgery. Also recommend Cyproheptadine 2 mg twice daily for appetite stimulation as this works very well for cats. I hope this helps you. Please feel free to write me back and ask questions as I check my computer twice daily and I will get back to you. Most Sincerely, DRJ

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

I am bottle feeding a kitten. She is 4-5 weeks old. Her sister died two days ago, had foul smelling white poop. This kitten was doing well until yesterday. I took her to the vet and he gave her fluids and said she was dehydrated. She seemed to perk up a bit last night. This morning she didn't eat very much and her poop is a white gray color just like her sisters was. I took her back to the vet and he gave her fluids again and this stuff in a tube for extra calories. I feel like she has something going on in her intestines. My question is would a shot of penicillin help her??? She is being bottle fed because her mom was killed by a coyote. I just feel like maybe I'm not being heard at the vet. … read more
