Rough Weekend for the Big Cats
Every now and again Charlene's right eye will get a little runny. We'll go to the vet, get some meds, and it all clears up in a day or two. This weekend, her right eye started getting a little winky and there was some discharge in the corner. Having dealt with this before, it didn't seem like an emergency situation, so we waited for the holiday weekend to be over, and took her to her regular vet.
During the exam her doctor discovered a small ulcer in the outside corner of her eye. Based on the size and location of the ulcer, most likely it was caused by a bop to the eye from her sister. We left with an antibiotic ointment and also some pain meds to use, if needed.
Bean is doing just fine, though it's a fight to get the ointment in her eye. She looks good and doesn't seem to be in any discomfort, thank goodness.
And then there's Wylla.
Saturday morning we had to take a run to the emergency vet because Wylla had some issues with her anal glands. I'm going to spare you the gory details, trust me, you don't want to hear them, but everything is fine now. Her pants got a little hair cut, she got some antibiotics, and is recovering just fine. The odds of this reoccurring are very slim, so most likely this will be the last of it.
Both girls are going in for re-checks on Monday and we're anticipating good reports.
