Dilated pupils

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all! I have a 4 month old kitten who seems to have dilated pupils all the time - they are not fully dilated but compared to the 2 other kittens we have at home, they are much larger. I realised this recently, but thinking about it and looking back at old pics, I think this has always been the case for her.

She doesn't seem to be affected by it and behaves the same as the other 2, but could this indicate any potential sight problems in the future? Anyone have any experience with this kind of thing?


Edited to say its not always dilated but frequently so....

I don't have a clue if this is a problem but if it were me, I would call my vet & ask about it.

If it were in an oldster or a cat with a known health condition such as CRF, I'd suspect high blood pressure. In such a young kitty, the only thing I can say for sure is this qualifies as a 'take the to vet' situation, imo.

Deffinatley talk to a vet. Noodles has a damaged pupil that I have to keep an eye on. She seems a bit more light sensitive in the direct sunlight, but not at all otherwise.

Does this seem to be a more recent thing or has it been her whole life? My cat Mama's pupils dialate when she's in heat. Her heat cycle lasts for a few days but the symptoms of it vary during those days. When she's really in the mood to mate her eyes will be huge and then they'll get smaller when she's more relaxed.
