Cat owners should know what to look for in their cats when considering the possible existence of dry eye. The most obvious warning sign is a thick yellow-green discharge of mucous that forms at the corner of the eyes. Inflammation of certain parts of the eye, like the thin membrane that lines the eyelid or the cornea, could also occur.
But a cat might let his owner know all by itself. That’s because the pain and discomfort caused by dry eye will likely lead to the cat constantly pawing at the eyes in a futile attempt at some relief. That should be a telltale sign that the cat should be taken to see a veterinarian.
There's growing evidence Vizoovet helps a lot with cats that are having a FHV outbreak. It also doesn't sting when it's administered. If you've ever seen how awful their eyes look during those periods it's a huge deal to the owners. FYI almost every cat has been exposed. About a third will be naturally immune, another third will be (Typhoid Marys) asymptomatic carriers and spread the infection yet never exhibit symptoms and the rest will be full blown infections.
