In all your rescued cats have you ever come across an Inflammed Eye Socket? I have been told by many vets that my Cat’s illness is a mystery and they don’t know much about Inflamed eye sockets. My Cat is Spayed 16ys (in Dec). All teeth pulled in July 2019 due to gingivostomatitis. Inside Mouth cleared. Fine for month. Started pawing a mouth after eat/drinking. Blood test show some bacteria in Kidney. Treated with Veraflox. Still pawing. Did An Ultra Sound/Normal except the bacteria which has since cleared up. Still pawing. Her left eye beginning to protrude out. DID A CT-SCAN Nov 2019. No tumors. What it showed was inflammation of the left EYE SOCKET and UPPER LEFT SINUS AREA. Meds: Prednisolone 5 mg/24 hr. Buprenex 0.1 ml 8-12 hrs for pain. The last Blood Test/All normal. From pawing she dug a hole in her cheek area. While at FoxFeed in CC yesterday they recommended I try Vetericyn Plus, for wound. 1st app. last night. She has always been drinking and eating through all of this. She is a fighter and I don’t want to just give up on her. In all your years of rescuing have you ever come across this type of Socket Inflammation? At this point I sure could use some of your wisdom and insight. Thank you for your time.

We have had a number of cats with protruding eyes. What you are referring to as an inflamed eye socket is a description of the condition and could be caused by a number of things. Glaucoma, sinus infections, tumors behind the eye, eye parasites, infections of the eye, and tumors of the eye are all possibilities. The pawing at the area definitely indicates there is pain from moving the mouth. As you have discovered, diagnosing the problem and finding an appropriate treatment can be a challenge. Removal of the eye should be considered as a possible solution. However if there is a tumor behind the eye this procedure may not cure the problem.
