Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I am sorry to hear your cat is having allergy problems. We are seeing a lot of allergies this year.

To help her you can use some Plain Sterile Saline without Preservatives in the eye to clean it out. For the allergies, the easiest medication to use is Plain Chlor-tirmeton, which can be found at most Pharmacies. You can give 2-4mgs every 12 hours. They come in 4mg Tablets, so easy to break and use. I would start with the low does and see how she does with it. If still giving her problems you can go to the full tablet. It may make her sleepy, but that is normal with an Antihistamine.

Please hit reply to discuss this information.

Joan
