Last night, Lily's eyes started to swell up. Not her actual eyes but the third eyelid near the inside corners of her eyes. I drove two hours home at about four in the morning last night so that I could get her to her normal vet as soon as they opened this morning. I got around two hours of sleep and when I woke up, her face was quite swollen. She wasn't lethargic at all but she was not comfortable and kept pawing at her poor eyes. I got her into the vet at 9:45 this morning and they were so sweet. She got a cortisone shot and we were given cortisone eye drops. I'm supposed to give her the eye drops three times a day for five days. It is now almost two o'clock and the swelling around her eyes has gone down substantially. The third eye-lid thing is still quite swollen. She is very sleepy (I can only assume from the cortisone shot) and I've been checking on her periodically. Has anyone else ever experienced something like this? Should I keep a lookout for side-effects from the cortisone shots? I can't eat or sleep and I'm absolutely sick about this. Thanks for any input.
