Q. My cat was hit with a baseball. What do I need to watch for?? Her pupil in her right eye is different now. Please help

A. She should be examined by a veterinarian to determine the extent of her injury, especially if her pupils are not symmetrical. Your vet can do a full neurologic exam and determine the best treatment. She may need a dose of an anti-inflammatory to help treat any swelling and inflammation.
