Around that eye looks a little icky, but that’s the medicine over-flow after I gave Dougy his eye drops. Between Dougy and me, we clean it up. I just wanted to show you how I restrain my kitties to give them medicine. I can’t believe I used to give them medicine without wrapping them in a towel! Impossible! And they do have claws.
Great method, Doug, and it works for you. I hope Dougy’s eye is significantly better!
It is, and today is the last day he has to have the drops. He will be happy about that!
And I am very happy to hear that!
Me, too! Dougy will not miss eye drop time.
My Chris always has gunk around his eyes and it is not from medicine. We often have to clean his eyes (and ears too) and he does not like it.
Same here. I always feel uncomfortable doing it simply because I worry I will scratch their corneas or something on that order. On the other hand, I’m sure their eyes feel better when the gunk is cleaned away!
I don’t worry too much about scratching his cornea because his eyes are closed and I wipe away from the eyes when I do it. I do know he doesn’t like it but, like you said, I’m sure he feels better afterwards.
Thanks for your encouragement! I tried it, the results were good, and I’m sure Dougy feels better for being cleaned up a bit.
Glad the meds worked 🐱 Washe Kat ‘saber toothed winky dinky’ was pulling for him 👉 https://washekoda.files.wordpress.com/2017/02/tumblr_olwrf6gbry1ssnb01o1_4001.gif
Much appreciated! Yes, he is healing nicely, and has been a very, very good kitty about being dosed. Frankly, I’m surprised because he’s even become accepting of being on held on his back. He used to go into a panic if even close to being put on his back.
Hopefully Dougy cat will be done with his eye drops soon. They don’t make it easy, do they? 🙂
His last drops are scheduled for tomorrow, Monday the 21st. He actually has been mostly very cooperative. He even seems less traumatized by being held on his back. I wish I figured out the towel swaddling business the first time he had to have these eye drops! He was a terror to dose back then!
