Hi, My cat is still not well and was given an antibiotic by the vet. I have noticed that his one eye is more dialated then the other what could this mean? Sandy:cat:
Have you had blood work to determine if there is anything else going on with your kitty?

One the antibiotic. In general, if there has not been a marked improvement within 48 hours of administering an antibiotic; you should contact your veterinarian and schedule a recheck.
With two eyes of different dilations (anisocoria), this is a serious clinical sign and also denotes a recheck with your veterinarian. Either one eye has intra-ocular inflammation/disease or there is a neurologic (brain) lesion present. Some of these can be readily treated but time is critical. Please recheck with your veterinarian. Good luck. :pawprint:

Can you explain more?:shrug:
Any time a cat has a noticeable reduction in appetite, there is a serious problem. The bad smell from the mouth can be from various causes but often from gingivitis (inflammation of the gums). In young cats, I worry about diseases like calici virus causing the gingivitis. In older cats, not only dental disease but also kidney and liver disease can cause this. General infections can also lead to bad breath (halitosis).
A few questions.
How old is your cat?
Current on vaccinations?
Can you look inside the mouth? Are there any spots on the tongue? Are the teeth clean and white or green and yucky?
Is he drinking water? If so, a lot? normal amount? less than normal?
Any other clinical signs.
In the meantime, it is very important that he is eating something, even if you need to force feed him a little. If there is mouth sensitivity, then warmed wet food can be both more appetizing and easier to eat.
Good luck and hope to talk to you soon.:pawprint:
