The eyes should be clear, bright and free from discharge. Some breeds of cat with ‘typey’ facial features often suffer from eye discharge; this occurs as a result of the skull structure being deformed, meaning that tears cannot drain away as they would normally.
Tear stains can be removed with cotton wool dipped in clean, boiled; and cooled water. And cloudy of the surface of the eye requires veterinary attention. the pupils should be of the same size and the third eyelid retracted. The inner ear surface should be clean, smooth and odour-free, and feel slightly greasy to the touch.
Cats do not usually need help in cleaning their ears. However, if the inside of his ear flaps pinnas are looking dirty, then you can gently clean them with cotton wool moistened with baby oil. Never poke cotton buds or anything else into the ear, or you may damage it. If you have any concerns about the cleanliness of your cat’s ears, consult your vet.
Administering medicine and pills
Only give medication as prescribed or advised by your vet, and administer it as directed. It helps to have someone to hold the cat while you give medicine or pills to him.
Giving medicine via a syringe your vet can supply these is the easiest way to administer it. Insert the nozzle in the corner of the mouth and squeeze a little at a time, stroking the cat’s throat to encourage him to swallow.
