If your cat is blind or visually impaired, lifestyle changes can be made to help make life easier for them at home.
Using a topical (skin) spot-on preparation
Many flea, anti-parasite preparations and even wormers now come as spot-on preparations, making them much easier to use on cats.
Giving tablets to your cat
Giving tablets to your cat can be stressful and few cats are cooperative. However, it is very important that a course of medication is completed, and if you are having any difficulty, simply contact the clinic – they will understand and try to help.
Cats are independent, territorial animals that need to be in control of their surroundings and are sensitive to different smells. These things can make visits to a vet clinic stressful.
