|This last week Porter took a bonk to the head when my fencing fell on him (he insists on helping me with everything). He has a cut over his left eye, but it is healing nicely - the one thing I am worried about is that his left pupil is slightly milky/cloudy looking. He normally has nice dark black pupils, but since the fence incident the one has been slightly clouded.
I did a bit of looking online and can't find any real info about the condition, everything points to cataracts, but those aren't caused by trauma (I didn't think so at least). I did see something on possible glaucoma (secondary), but the fact that he has been like this since Saturday (I didn't notice the pupil til a day or so ago) and isn't showing any sign/symptoms (other than the milky pupil) of it yet make me wonder.
Anybody had any experience with this (in either human or pet)? I keep seeing things associated with cloudy pupils that are due to congenital/hereditary/genetic diseases.
And yes...he has an appointment tomorrow with the vet, it was the soonest I could get him in to see a vet I trust (the other in the office would probably try to prescribe some SD for it).
