Thank god I work in a vets!! Poor Crinkle is having a hell of a time with his eyes :( He has been diagnosed with Uveitis and I have been told his lens' are luxating and he may need them removed plus he will probably get glaucoma!!

He has come to work with me three or four times so far and had to be knocked out once to have blood tests and a chest xray and his ear cleaned fully. I was so worried about his blood test results but thankfully he is negative for FeLV, FIV, and Coronovirus plus Toxoplasmosis is negative!! His kidneys are fine his liver enzymes were a little high but we are hoping that was due to being starved for the sedation and his CK levels were through the roof but we are putting that down to all the knocks and falls he takes as his kidney function is ok and he not a really young kitten we are not worried.

He has to come back to work again tomorrow now as I have noticed yet more changes to his eyes that are not too good. As he is a little sod to examine big time he is needing to be starved again incase he needs sedating again.

The poor thing goes through so much and I was really worried his blood tests were going to show something really nasty that he would need PTS but thankfully they didn't and he seems happy it is just heartbreaking seeing him run from me when I have the towel in my hands ready to wrap him up twice a day for his eye drops :(

Please send you get well vibes for him and keep him in your thoughts tomorrow.

Sorry for the essay!! :eek:

have you tried manuka honey, this is very good for eye problems etc.
this is how i use it:
boil the kettle add a teaspoon of hot water to a tablespoon of manuka honey, leave to cool then use a dropper 2 drops into the bottom eyelid, i used it twice a day and found a difference after 3 days.
its perfectly safe to use as i asked the eye specialist with my kitten with the eye ulcer as vet ointment wasnt working very well.

It is not an infection or anything on the 'outside' of the eye it's all problems with the inside and back of the eyes so I doubt manuka would work tbh but thanks for the suggestion.

have you tried Clinagel from the vet, this is good ointment also.:)
He is on predforte drops that are steroid ones to try and bring the inflamation in the back of the eye down. It did seem to be working but now it is back to where we started with the black spots on his eyes :(

He really looks like he has been through the wars too as when we took his blood for testing we had to knock him out as he is near impossible to do anything like that to concious. Cos the domitor (sedation drug) lowers blood pressure it was near impossible to get the blood from him so he is all clipped up under his neck and both front paws :( He looks a right sight bless him but still as cuddly as ever :)

Poor dear little Crinkle. I hope he feels better soon. Tell him he needs to stop worrying his mummy so much too, and all of us on PF. I think he's one of our unofficial mascots at this point.

He was a very good boy today and let Emily look at his eyes concious so he didn't need sedating :thumbup: He has got some worrying things still going on in his eyes but thankfully they are still reacting to the light and that is a good thing.

Just got to see if insurance will pay out as to if he can go on to see a specialist fingers crossed please guys!
