Potential anti-freeze poisoning

Bo was asleep at the end of my bed and started to shake with her eyes completely shut. She couldn’t open her eyes at all and stood up. She tried to walk but fell back down.

I rang the vets and they said that it sounded like she was in the drunk stage of anti-freeze poisoning and we should get her to the vets ASAP. I rang my mum and she came and picked us both up. There was so much traffic, that the drive to the vets was a long one.

When we got there, Bo was seen to straight away. She had usual tests and also extraction of urine from her bladder. There was no anti-freeze poisoning – in fact it turned out that Bo had just been over-reacting to something in her eye!

We left the vets with a lovely bill and a healthy cat who only had to have an eye drop.
