Rushed Honey to the emergency vet this morning when we woke up and found her completely lethargic and unresponsive and unable to open her eyes. Very unsteady on her feet and could hardly get her in & out of the car.
Harrowing morning, dragging into afternoon, waiting around while they ran tests – it seems to be acute glaucoma, with the pressure in her left eye 3 times normal. She was in a lot of pain (massive headache), nauseous and very high heart rate, slight fever. They’re keeping her in hospital overnight to monitor her and try to bring the pressure down in her eye with medication, plus determine the cause – as she was perfectly normal at 10pm last night. Very scary how quickly these things happen.
Because of the very high pressure, there’s probably been a lot of damage to her left eye and they think she may have lost the vision in that eye - and possibly may even need to have that eye removed.
To be honest, watching her stagger around this morning, I really thought we were going to lose her and would actually be relieved now just to have her back, minus one eye or not. Although it would be a tragedy for her to lose her beautiful eyes. Anyway, vet will update us in the morning…will keep you all posted when I can.
