Horners syndrome


Hi Everyone,

Had to take Skye to the vet this morning as i noticed last night that she had a film over the corner of her right eye. Got up this morning and it was the same so decided to take her to get it checked as i dont like taking risks with their eyes!!

Vet had a good look at her and the fim is actually her 3rd eyelid protecting her eye. He checked for any damage on the surface of her eye but there is none. After looking her over, he has advised that she has Horners Syndrome which can have many causes including having an abcess in her teeth (her teeth arent great even though she has biscuits) but it can also be neurological. He has given us antibiotics for 10 days (going to be interesting trying to give them to her!!) and a follow up in about 10 days to see if it has cleared. If not, then she will need a CAT scan to ee if there is anything else going on causing it. HE has said that the cases of it he has seen have been nothing too serious and have cleared after a course of antibiotics. Still a worry though as it could be another cause for it with her.

Please keep her in your thoughts and i will update how she is getting on

Re: Horners syndrome


thanks folks. Hoping the tablets kick in. She took the first one without any trouble as i squashed it into a bit of chicken which she happily ate and even crunched the tablet!!
