Uneven pupils and otitis?
Hello, cat lovers. :) First of all, thank you for reading my post! It's about Maria, my lovely 14-year-old cat. Second, I'm sorry for any English mistakes. It's not my first language.
Maria presented with anisocoria (uneven pupils - constricted left pupil) about two months ago. I called a vet, and he prescribed Ciprofloxacin (cream) for her eye.
The uneven pupils disappeared in 5 days.
It's been 7 days that she presented the same symptom again. Same eye. Also, I noticed drooping of the eyelid, sinking of the eyeball into the eye socket, and protrusion of the third eyelid.
I was almost calling an ophthalmologist when I also noticed her shaking her head and tilting her left ear down, as if something was bothering her. I called my vet again. He came over and found out otitis. He said the anisocoria might be due to this fact. He prescribed an antibiotic, and an anti-inflammatory.
It's been 4 days that she's been treated with these medicaments. She's not showing discomfort with her ear anymore - as if it wasn't even there! But, the uneven pupils are still there. Same size, just a little better than before.
I was wondering if anyone has been through this with their cat. Should I start thinking about a neurologist? Maybe I should wait for the completion of this treatment?
Any comments are deeply appreciated!
