Helen asks…

My cat has Uveitis. Should I get a blood test for her?

The vet suggested I get a blood test for my cat to find the source of the issue for its Uveitis. Here’s the catch: 60% of the time the test is unable to diagnose the issue, and the test costs 255$. From what I read, there are several causes of Uveitis. They range from serious diseases/infections to trauma. However, the diseases/infections are typically found in older cats while my cat is barely a year old. Furthermore, when I found my cat outside with her eye shut, she had dirt on her cheek which leads me to believe she had experienced trauma to the head. During the examination the vet also said she had bruising near her eye. So, basically, knowing all of this, should I get the blood test? The reason I’m asking is because I didn’t get a good vibe from the vet. I’m not sure if he’s trying to milk me for my money, or has a legitimate concern for my cat’s well-being. Note: I spent 250$ on running tests and examinations to get to this point. After reading about Uveitis, it was fairly obvious that my cat was suffering from this, and I’m not sure he needed to run the other tests which ended up being negative and costing me about 100$. Sorry if this is long. I just want to provide a good picture of the scenario. Any advice is appreciated; specially if someone has had a similar experience. I forgot to mention that I’m currently applying medicine that was prescribed by the vet. This medicine dilates her pupil, and prevents leakage of mucus discharge from the eye.
