My cat is 16 years old and a few months ago her one eye turned a blotchy back where it should be white. Then the whole eye was black and soon after the other eye started to turn black. We took her to the vet and she did a preliminary blood test and said it was inconclusive and said could be an eye infection. She presecribed drops. They seemed to work but after the drops were finished about a month later its back in her right eye ?
Does anyone know what it is? Is it painful.. can she see? I feel so bad for her but dont have money to take her for more testing. Is there something I could do for her myself ?
The only thing i can think that could cause that is some sort of small bleed. It could be relative to a condition like hypertension or a recurring infection(comes and goes). I'd also consider a second opinion, as just getting more drops may only cover up an underlying serious condition.
