I do have a weird question though -- could glucosamine chondroitin possibly cause/contribute to this? How about kidney disease or liver dysfunction?
Lynx, she did have a couple courses of steroids. One was after her first bladder stone surgery two years ago -- a course of Dex which saved her life. Then about a year ago she had a course of Prednisone after a malignant growth was removed from her bladder.
I don't know if that would be enough steroid use. Her other meds are polycitra and metacam.
Best guess is that Milo is around 4 years old. Other than the eye, he's been very healthy and had no other problems (knock wood). Only one eye is affected to this extent (the other eye is still black with a tiny bit of white creeping in and just a hint of possible clouding). It has progressed fairly quickly since Christmas. He doesn't seem bothered by it in the slightest. I believe that he is blind in that eye.
