Damage to cat's eye: emergency?
August 19, 2006 2:05 PM Subscribe
Vet emergency? This morning I noticed that my cat was squinting one of his eyes a little bit, but just a little bit. I thought maybe he accidently got hit in the eye, either by the other cat or something else.
I was gone most of the afternoon but now that I'm back it is definitely worse. His eye is mostly closed now and the second eyelid is visible (so it looks white) in the corner (by the nose). Also, it's a little bit wet on the fur on the upper part of his eye and it looks a little runny in the corner.
I'd try to take a picture but the eye is mostly closed and I'm not quick enough before he shuts it again.
Is this something that might be worth it to go to the emergency vet? Any idea how much a trip like that might cost?
