Dougy isn’t thrilled about being held on his back under any circumstances. Unfortunately, that is the best position to hold him to medicate him. For that reason, I have to wrap him in a large bath towel to put the gel and eye drops in his eye.
The gel is a pain, and, if Dougy moves his head just a little, the gel ends up on his face. The drops aren’t as difficult to manage. Regardless, I got him medicated and we have just till September 30th to suffer (yes, both Dougy and me!) this need.
I was worried he might become fearful of me because of this, but the medication must make his eye feel better because he’s his old buddy-buddy self with me. Whew!
Thank the heavenly stars that those droppies don’t burn when they go in Dougy’s eyes.
He seems to like the feeling once they are in.
Poor Dougy! I hope the meds helped!
Yes, his eye is fine now!
I am glad to hear that! Meanwhile, Barmalei had an allergic reaction to something (he is just like me – allergic to everything in the world!), and I had to rush him to the vet yesterday. Considering that we are leaving in a few minutes on a long car trip up North, that was quite a scare! He is fine now, after two shots, thank G-d!
I can’t imagine what that was like for you, Dolly. I try to imagine how I’d tell if one of my Persian kitty boys had an allergic reaction – hidden under all that kitty fur, and I fear I might miss the vital clues. Anyway, good news about Barmalei!
Glad to hear he’s a bit better. Giving meds stinks, it’s always a struggle.
Dougy is a n easy patient by an large, though I still have to immobilize him in a heavy blanket for best results! He seems to accept it, making me think his eye feels better after the treatment.
Getting medicine is never fun. I have to put drops in Chris’s ears. He hates that.
Ugh! I can imagine what that’s like! I have good results r=wrapping kitties in heavy towels for medicine giving purposes, but they still can move just enough to avoid the medicine if I’m not alert…!
Glad to hear Dougy is doing better. They do seem to understand when eye medicine correlates with their eyes feeling better.
It makes medicating him a lot easier than it might be otherwise!
Poor Baby. My mom had a sweet persian. She actually bonded with my dad. A few days before dad died, she hid. She knew. I have never seen a persian portrayed as evil
The movies “Cats and Dogs”and”Stuart Little” show Persians as bad.
I wonder how he got the infection? The Persian cats I’ve met have never been villains!
It’s passed on to kittens by their mothers, according to his veterinarian. It’s feline herpes.
Wow really! Apparently the hoomans can’t be infected…
Not this one, fortunately!
YAY! Otherwise gloves would be needed I bet.
LOL! At least!
I hope your feeling OK Doug, and it looks like you have some seriously cold weather and snow heading your way soon.
Thanks, John! Yes, I am feeling quite well lately!
My poor guy. Now he knows what Andy has been going through with daily medicine.
All three of us are having to take medications at the moment!
What is amazing, Doug , is he let you medicate him .
Actually, Dougy is pretty good about letting me medicate him, though I do wrap him in a heavy towel first, Michel.
he knows that you only try to help his eye… he is a smart boy ;O)
A very sweet kitty, too! It surprises me that Persians are cast as villains in movies about cats and dogs when they actually have extremely mild, sweet dispositions.
