Q. Can I use a warm soaked cloth in Epson and lavender to sooth my cats eye of course closed as it is irritated
LINDSEY EDWARDS MVB, BSC, IVCA
A. I would not apply lavender or epsom salts in or around the eye as they can be very irritant. A closed eye should always be examined by a vet to rule out ulceration or surface injury which could cause scarring and threaten vision
A. I would highly recommend not using these products near your cat's eye. These are highly irritating if they get into the eye and can cause further damage. You can try a warm compress with only water. If no improvement, have him seen by a veterinarian.
