Q. my cats eye looks cloudy with lining over eye from scratch. we got meds from doctor and didn't clear up. what should I do

A. Scratched eyes can be very tricky to treat and definitely require often follow up visits to the vet. This can become serious without close monitoring. You should go back to your vet for a follow up. Also if you arent using an elizabethean collar (the lamp shade collars) , you should certainly get one. This will prevent your cat from pawing at its eye and making it worse. Most specialty clinics have an optometrist. It may be a little more expensive but they are experts. You could ask your vet for a referral. Good luck!
