My out door cat has half of her eye covered by her third eyelid. By her fresh wounds she has been in a fight. What do I do?
Thanks in advance!
Most of the time the 3rd eyelid or haw, a nictating membrane, retracts on it’s own. Could be something as simple as dehydration, might be a number of conditions. but the correlation with fight induced injury is not likely as a direct cause. Get her to a vet, have her tested for tapework (bring fresh stool sample)
My out door cat has half of her eyes covered by her third eyelid. She is banged up and was in a fight telling by the wounds. I don’t want her to go blind, she is such a sweet heart help!
recently went to vet for this same thing and she discovered yeast infection in ears and that this can cause paralysis in the face hence the third eye it may get better with the ear being treated but may remain or will take quite some time to heal as this is nerve damage from the yeast infection being bad hope you found help
I took my cat to the vet regarding a 3rd eye covering about 1/2 her eye. The vet tested for glacouma and injury. Neither were appararent and he gave me antibiotic drops to administer in her eyes. They did nothing. I’m supposed to bring her back for a recheck, although her 3rd eye is getting worse and is now at 85% covered. I’m sick about it and do not want her to lose her eye. If anyone has any advice, please let me know asap.

I have a cute 6 month old kitten with fleas about his face and a third eyelid problem. When we got him he came to us with upperespiratory. We love him Maureen
Can the cat see out of the eye with the third eyelid covering it?
