Meet Anna, a very loved 3-year-old domestic short-hair cat. Unfortunately, Anna had a run-in with a dog, who isn't a fan of cats. During the attack, Anna’s eye was damaged. Her mom didn't want to risk Anna losing her eye, so she took Anna to the vet to make sure her kitty would be OK.
At the vet’s office, Anna was given medication that will help her eye heal, and will need to have regular check-ins with the vet over the next few months.
Anna’s mom is a single mom who recently changed jobs, and didn't have any money saved up for these unexpected vet visits. So, she applied to Fur Kids Foundation for help.
We’re happy to report that Anna’s vet is very optimistic that she will keep her eye.
If your cat has an eye injury, not getting it treated properly can greatly damage your cat’s eye; it can even lead to blindness in severe cases. If your cat is avoiding bright lights, keeping its eye closed and squinting, it’s very likely that their eye is injured. Seek veterinary care immediately.
