If you care for an elderly, injured or special needs pet, you've come to the right place!
Hi! I recently adopted the sweetest cat in the entire world. He is blind and his left eye gets very gooey. Both eyes develop gunk, but the left one is worse. He is awaiting surgery to have his eyes stitched, so I am hoping that the surgery will take care of his problem. In the mean time, I am worried that the left eye is starting to bother him. Today, as usual, I wiped his eyes, and he jumped a little when I wiped the left eye. I am very gentle when i do this, also the residue coming out of his eyes is a copper color. It almost looks like blood, but i do not believe it is. Any suggestions for eye solutions or anything that might make my guy more comfortable? Thanks!
can you clarify the surgery he is having? his eye stitched?
we have several cats here with eye problems. some due to herpes virus and one who needed an eye removed and the lid stitched shut.
haven't met a cat yet who likes having their eyes cleaned! they jump, wriggle, complain etc.
you can use plain artificial tears to help keep the eyes clean and non irritated, they won't like that either but the eyes will be less irritated.
can you post picts of the eyes?
