How to give your cat eye drops

Need to give your cat eye drops? Watch our video guide on how to safely give your cat eye drops. As demonstrated by Vet, Vicky Bridges.

What is the best way of giving my cat eye drops?

You might need someone to help you by holding the cat still. Hold the top of your cat’s head and using that same hand; gently squeeze downwards to the cat’s eyes open. You can then apply the drops. 

Administer a small amount of the treatment to your cat’s eye. Let them blink gently, making sure that the drops don’t pass away from the eye itself.

Please remember, it's important to only treat your cat with eye drops if your vet has prescribed it, and that you use the very same eye drops as the vet recommends
