    Blind Cat

    I took my perfectly health cat to be groomed, she was matted around her back area really bad. They gave her Acepromazine 0.04 and the gave her her shots, FVRCP/FELV 1 yr. vaccine and a rabies vaccine....When I got her home she was completely BLIND. I took her out of her cage and was so upset. Took her back to the Dr. and 370.00 later told me they didn't know what happened...Can anyone explain this to me?
