My cat is a Cornell grad!
On Tuesday, I had to take Ponyboy up to Cornell for an appointment with a veterinary ophthalmic specialist.
Yep, my cat has an eye doctor.
Due to the feline herpes he had as a kitten before he came into rescue care, Pony has a chronically runny right eye. He's been to several local veterinarians and been on all kinds of different meds, with no improvement. (Before anyone asks: YES, we've tried lysine! for YEARS. Didn't work.) So his latest veterinarian wanted him to be seen at the Cornell Companion Animal Hospital, to see if the specialists there had a fresh take on his condition.
Ponyboy was a trouper, through the ride up and back, the three hour (!) vet visit, the tests, the poking, the prodding, he was fine through it all. What a good boy!
He was given a couple of new medications to try (*sigh*), and he'll be rechecked in a few weeks to see if the latest greatest meds are making any difference.
Hang in there, Pony! We'll find the right meds someday!
