Nem

Meet Nem. Nem is not only a very resilient cat, she may also have super powers, or at the very least, she is a ninja cat.
We were asked for help by Nem’s Mum because Nem’s eyes were constantly irritated, and a previous diagnosis and medication did not seem to help at all.

Upon examination, Dr. Llewellyn not only discovered that he had severe bilateral entropion (rolling in of the eyelids), but that he was also blind in both eyes! No one in Nem’s family had suspected that he was blind because he had learned to manoeuvre around with no real difficulty with the use of his other senses. His whiskers and ears are in constant motion to allow him to better understand his surroundings!

Dr. Llewellyn arranged for Nem to be seen by the ophthalmologist at Scottsdale Veterinary Hospital to have surgery to correct his eyes. We are happy to report is back home and doing extremely well. He has recovered from his surgery and will have his eyes rechecked in two weeks by Dr. Llewellyn.
