    Been a while!

    ...Tigger was diagnosed with HOCM a couple of years ago. Medication is helping, but his condition is worse than Gizzy’s. Katie developed entropion from her eyelid attaching itself to the eye when it healed from rupturing as a kitten, so she recently had surgery to fix that and is now healing...

    Thank you for that! I’ll definitely keep everyone updated And of course here’s a picture it’s hard to capture a picture of it because it’s either squinted or the camera can’t pick it up

    Gatsbys corneal sequestrum

    ...to the letter. Momdeeze member had a kitty thats corneal sequestrum healed too. have the opthamologist check eye lid area for any entropion or ectropion too while you are there anyways. they really did do a thorough exam and did not push a lot of test or even surgery when I took him, and...

    Skin irritation around eye?

    It looks red/swollen. Possibly she has some entropion going on. (where the eyelid curls inward and the lashes scratch the eye) Definitely recommend a vet visit just to be sure.

    Eye Goo... should I be concerned?

    ...a wonderful site. we all learn and grow together and try to help with suggestions and ideas for the vets to rule out. some kitties do get entropion and or ectropion which we have seen in some kitties. others just have goopy eyes by nature... if it is green colored then it is a concern for...

    Red swirls on skin

    ...a vet who works with Sphynx cats who has agreed to fix her so we will see if the issue is hormonal. Additionally, she caught that Jinkx has entropion in both eyes (symptoms were squinting, watery/goopy eyes/rubbing at the eyes) so she is on meds for that and seems to be feeling a lot better...

    it's been a rough week!

    When she was a kitten she did have a very slight entropion that we were to just keep an eye on. It’s the same eye that is bothering her currently. So it very well could be that. The vet really didn’t say much else except that it isn’t an ulcer. I have a follow up appointment scheduled already...

    it's been a rough week!

    Did they say anything possibly about entropion? It’s where eyelashes curl inward and scratch at the cornea. Just a thought on a possible cause. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    eye concern?

    Next vet trip, you can ask your vet if it might be entropion. We have seen some members have this issue with their naked babies. You can type the word in the search bubble and look around a bit. Some have actually had surgery to correct it if it is. Here is some info on it. How to Diagnose and...

    eye concern?

    ...the vet lots of times and didn't find out anything, mostly due to the fact that people (here) don't know about donskoy...so they said it's entropion, or that his eyes are dry, we used lots of artificial tears, creams, one ophtalmologist even suggested that the glands that are supposed to...

    Eye infection

    That could be Feline herpes or Entropion amongst multiple other types of eye infections out there, Keep in mind it can become VERY costly with medical bills and the cat could lose the eye, it looks pretty bad in the photo. Keep us updated on your decision. :)

    Umami

    Thank you! We sent the video to the vet and she said right away she thought it was some irritation to the eye and nothing neurological. She's booked us in straight with the eye specialist but we need to wait until Tuesday next week. So until then, she's prescribed an eye drop/ointment to help...

    ...was entropian as well. I’m sure you have looked it up, but I am attaching a definition for others who might not know what that means Entropion is an abnormality of the eyelids in which the eyelid "rolls" inward. This inward rolling often causes the hair on the surface of the eyelid to rub...

    Umami

    Ok! We'll definitely ask the vet to rule that out. The vet hasn't seen this twitching in the absence of major swelling and/or green discharge, so they've always put it down to the conjunctivitis. Now I have these videos I can at least show her if she doesn't do it in the vets office. We'll find...

    ...does the twitching last ? Any meowing with it ? Definitely would ask your vet for the specialist referal - Did the vet think it was eye related or neurological ? I personally would ask to rule out entropion of the eyelids which I learned can cause cats to have eye spasms due to the irritation)

    Donskoy kitten possible eye issue

    Hi @Izidora, Hi everyone I've talked to has said there was only like one Canadian Sphynx and Donskoy mix and the cat was very unhealthy. Are you sure yours is a mixture? We had thought out Sphynx Rabbi was a mix of the two. Where did he come from? Cute cat :) Kim

    Introducing Layla

    ...the medical care she desperately needed. Thus far she has had surgery for her left eye to remove her ulcer and correct a turned in eyelid (entropion) and we are taking things day by day with her right eye. The Ophthalmologist unfortunately believes this eye is blind due to glaucoma which...

    Donskoy kitten possible eye issue

    ...is a donskoy+canadian mix. He was squinty ever since he was a kitten and I've changed lots of vets. The most important is that you rule out entropion or any damages on the eye. Vet can also do a Schirmer's test - measure the amount of eye's moisture. Our diagnosis was something like, the...

    We have had a few members go through with the surgery. In the search bubble type in entropion and you will find many threads to research. @Helsinki has not be an active member for a while, but tag her as she was a great resource and might comment.
