Q. Is there a Holistic treatment for runny eyes in my cat?

Answered By

A. Always make sure the hair is clipped short and there are no irritants to the eyes. Never put ANYTHING in the eyes not prescribed by a veterinarian. You can clean around the eyes with a bit of warm (not hot!) chamomile tea on a cotton ball. Most importantly if the eyes are runny you should have your cat evaluated by a veterinarian to make sure there is no upper respiratory infection or the like going on.
