Cat care: Ears and eyes

Caring for your cat

Ears and eyes

Your cat’s ears and eyes can easily become infected and it is important to recognise any changes and talk to your vet to care for your cat’s sight and hearing. Bacterial and viral eye infections are quite common in cats and so if your cat starts rubbing his or her eyes or there is redness or discharge talk to your vet as they can both be the signs of an infection that needs treatment. Eye problems can also be a sign of more serious underlying problems especially in older cats.

Ear problems are also common in cats whether caused by mites, bacterial infection, polyps or even tumours.
