Cats have beautiful eyes, all will attest, but sometimes these beautiful eyes have problems that need caring for. Spokane cat owners are opting for homeopathic eye drops which were produced with the speculation that like cures like. A homeopathic eye solution can clarify minor infections with a buildup that is mucus-like. It also shrinks irritated tissue and opens the tear ducts. Dilution of the solution is imperative so the remedy is not overpowering
Once you assess your cat's eye condition, look for homeopathic eye drops that contain rosemary (rosmarinus officinalis), majus), (arctium lappa), tetterwort (chelidonium
burdock and/or meadowsweet (filipendula ulmaria). Burdock acts as elimination and cleaning herb that detoxifies the tissue around the eye. Burdock nurses dry eyes and eye infections. Rosemary is a topical antiseptic with pain reliving and disinfecting and pain qualities. Rosemary calms inflammation and Tetterwort boosts the immune system, acts as a painkiller and fights infection... Meadowsweet's astringent, antiseptic and inflammatory characteristics heal and sooth eye infections.
Before administrating an application of homeopathic eye drops to your cat, assemble a few paper towels, sterile cotton balls, and a teacup with a small amount of the homeopathic eye drops. If your cat gives you permission to wipe her/his eyes without swatting at you, you can apply the eye drops by placing the cat between your legs, facing the same direction as you are facing. If your cat is a bit temperamental and not too fond of having you touch her/his face, you may want to caringly wrap her/him in a towel so that her/his front and back paws are constrained.
When your feline is in place for her/his homeopathic eye drops, gently wipe away the eye discharge and then dip a cotton ball into the eye drop solution, saturating the cotton. Squeeze out any surfeit so it does not drip. Carefully tilt your cat's head back with your free hand. Situate your index finger ½ inch above your cat's eye. Soothingly squeeze off three drops into each eye, consciously counting as it drips down your finger and into the eye.
Most homeopathic eye drop solutions call for washing of the eyes and applying the remedy three times a day.
Frequently changes in the environment irritate the eyes; extra debris in the air, dusty room, or a windy day. If the homeopathic eye drops work for your feline, it saves not only a visit to the veterinarian, but also undue apprehension for your cat
Take into account that the greater the amount of discharge, the more staid the eye condition. If your cat's eyes don't show improvement after a couple of days, make an appointment with your veterinarian to examine the eyes.
