Ask Dr Elliot: My Cat Has Something in Her Eye, What Should I Do?


cat_eyepatchA Pawfun Blog reader asks: My cat has something in her eye and it seems it can’t be moved. Doesn’t seem to bother her, it’s pretty small, like a piece of glitter or something similar. Should I take her to the vet or will the eye naturally get rid of this?

Holistic veterinarian Dr Jill Elliot says: Buy an eye wash from a pet store and try to wash out the piece of whatever is stuck there yourself. Gently run the eye wash over your cat’s eye from the inside to the outside. If it is something like a flake of something it should wash out. If not, see your veterinarian.
