Re: Re: chat messages

Kitty: Cloudy eyes are usually cataracts, which is a discoloring of the
lens of the eye. Glaucoma is actually a separate disease, which is
caused by increasing pressure of the intra-ocular fluid (inside the
eye). Humans are usually treated for glaucoma with a regimen of daily
eye drops...wonder if cats can be treated with same? You might ask your
vet about this...it won't cure the disease but it does help to radically
slow it's progression.

Yes, I was a little confused because it was my impression he has
had<br>glaucoma all these years as the eye got more cloudy with the
passage of<br>time. Now the vet said it is a glaucoma. Guess I just
didn't understand<br>the disease. The whole thing has me pretty scared.
What if I don't notice<br>the tilt of the cornea shift forward? An eye
"blowing out" on the poor<br>little guy sounds frightening to
me.<br><br>Kitty<br><br>----- Original Message ----- <br>From: "Melody"

Subject: Re: Re: [CHAT] chat messages<br>><br>> That's sad, Melody. I

ame to us perfectly normal and healthy<br>> as kittens. We had an<br>>
aging dog that objected to sharing his food<br>> with them and they
both<br>> walked up to him when he was eating and he<br>> grabbed them
by the head and<br>> flung them across the kitchen. Poor<br>> Miko (the
himalayan) got a broken<br>> jaw and punctured roof of his<br>> mouth
for his trouble. At the time, he was<br>> the only thing our poor<br>>
dog had ever objected to...kids could crawl all<br>> over this dog<br>>
pulling every which way on him and he wouldn't so much as<br>>
twitch.<br>> At the time, we just thought it was an accident. A year
later,<br>> with<br>> Katie the second kitten, when the exact same thing
happened, we had<br>><br>> the dog put down. Turned out every one of his
litter mates had been<br>> put<br>> down for brain tumors that resulted
in unprovoked aggression<br>> and the vet<br>> thinks this is what
happened with him. Almost killed me<br>> to put that dog<br>> to sleep
but I couldn't bear the thought of this<br>> great big gentle dog<br>>
whom we loved so much turning into a monster<br>> and being left with
the<br>> memory of him mauling a kid or something.<br>> Funny thing is,
every dog<br>> we've had since we've been looking for<br>>
him...fo<br>><br>> und him in Sidda but had<br>> to put her down, too.
Maybe we're just<br>> cursed when it comes to big<br>>
dogs...<br>><br>><br>><br>> Melody, IA<br>> (Z 5/4)<br>><br>> "The most
