Eye Inflammation (Blepharitis) in Cats
The course of treatment will depend ultimately on the underlying cause of the disease. In cases of self-trauma, for example, your veterinarian may recommend the use of an Elizabethan collar (cone). More severe cases, on the other hand, may require medication and/or surgery. And in cases of food allergy, the food allergen must be identified and eliminated from the diet.
Living and Management
The overall prognosis of cats with blepharitis depends on the underlying cause. Some cats respond well, whereas in others, a “cure” is not possible. If antibiotics are prescribed, you should notice an improvement in your cat within three weeks. However, consult your veterinarian before you stop cease providing medication to your cat. This may help prevent an unnecessary relapse. In addition, follow the veterinarian's therapeutic and diet diet plan accordingly.
