Oh, Bash.

Bash
Bash, whose nickname is Murder Cat, apparently has a corneal ulcer caused or exacerbated by ocular herpes!

Yeah fun.

The kitty opthalmologist said he's almost certainly had flareups in the past; we adopted him at age 12, so... *shrug* He has some thinning of his cornea and may develop cataracts, poor giant jerk kitty.

He has a lot of medications.

* Serum eyedrops 4-6 times a day.
* Ofloxacin eyedrops 4-6 times a day.
* Terramycin ointment applied directly to the eye 3-4 times a day.
* Atropine ointment applied directly to the eye once a day.
* Buprenex in his mouth twice a day.
* Lysine chews twice a day.

If you see me this week, hug me. And bring band-aids. Because medicating him is exactly as fun as you think it is.

(Also, DAMN, $600 in the past few days for this cat.)

eye stuff is expensive when it gets into the drops ranges - husband had 4 or 5 different eye drops prescriptions going at one point this year.

Ocular Herpes. Ocular herpes.

Ocular herpes... that's what you get when you look at dirty porn too much, right?

(sorry, couldn't resist)

I'm really sorry to hear about this, but could not help snorting upon reading "poor giant jerk kitty."
