Cat Eye and Ear Medicine to Treat Infections and Diseases
If you suspect your cat has an eye or ear infection, it’s worth scheduling an appointment with their veterinarian. While cat eye infections are common in young felines they can be a sign of a more serious condition in older pets. Typically eye infections are caused by bacteria but they can also result from an autoimmune disease or cancer.
Because cat ear infections are rarer, be on the lookout for symptoms that include a strong odor, discharge from the ear or a loss of balance. By consulting your pet’s veterinarian they can diagnose your feline and prescribe a cat eye or ear medicine to get them back on track.
