The first thing I would do is go back to the vet and complain about the amount he charged you for a misdiagnosis. I would also ask for an antibiotic ointment (teramyacin) or drops to help the eye heal. I would also find out if her eyesight in that is has been compromised. I'm glad you found it. It's too bad your vet wasn't paying more attention.

I am so sorry to hear that the vet charged you an arm and a leg for your baby's treatment and then was wrong. At least there is hope that things will be ok. The ointment that I have always been given is Neobacimyx. really inexpensive and does alot of good. I hope that everything works out for you.

You know, it's sad to say but some vets miss things. It is hard to find the ones who really do it for the animals. I have found plenty of vets that for some unkown reason got into the buisness for money. Either that, or at some point they lost thier compassion. It only takes me one screw up and I wont use that vet again. I am glad everything turned out okay for the kitten though. I hope you can find a better vet for the future.

Keep in mind though that vets are human and they do make mistakes! Even a very good vet still makes mistakes. Now I'm not saying you should stay with the vet if you don't like them / don't trust them - etc. Just a thought... I'm glad your kitten is okay though!!

Also, IMHO I've found that the better the relationship I have with my vet the better care. So I try to find vets that I like not only as vets but as people...
