Cat Eye Problems
My cat has eye problems. The vet has recommended L-Lysine and I give him 2 capsules, mixed with wet food, every day. This is supposed to prevent the virus from replicating or something like that. Eye drops and eye gels (antibacterial, from the vet) only seem to make it worse. Supposedly it is incurable. Every few days I put cotton pads soaked in warm water on the eyes (closed) to get the dried gunk off. The stuff that comes out of the eyes is sort of yellowish but it dries to a brownish-red. He is a great cat and I wish I could do more for him. If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate them. His eyes have been like this since I got him, but in the past several years it seems to have gotten worse.
