So I was seeing patients today and I met a cat with a pinkish rim around the limbus of the eye. All sorts of thoughts rushed through my head, and I got to thinking about FIV, FIP, Feleuk, and others. I decided to Google some images of this cat’s eye in case there was something obvious about it, and found out that a massive 60% of uveitis in cats is inexplicable.
It started a week ago as a runny eye. The cat was normal otherwise. And then 6-7 days later this appears.
So I did some digging and I found an article that provides a GREAT summary of cat uveitis.
Here’s the link: Feline Uveitis and How To Treat and Diagnose It.
It’s written by a specialist in Washington State and it’s good.
