Eye Problems in Dogs and Cats

Herbal remedies to help relieve common eye problems and promote healthy eyes in cats and dogs.

Natura Petz supplements to help support eye health in dogs and cats.

Nutrition is directly related to bone, teeth, skin and coat health as well a coordinated effort by the immune systems and other tissues and organs in the body. Plant botanicals help support the process of free radical scavenging, the skin’s ability to withstand the effects of environmental exposure to toxins, antigens and microorganisms by maintaining proper liver, adrenal, immune, and intestinal function; protect the skin and all connective tissues, including the joints; to reduce inflammation throughout the body, including the joints, acidify urine, improve immune function and build resistance to allergies.

Our pets are subject to many of the same eye conditions that we are, including glaucoma, corneal ulceration, cataracts, dry eye, retinal degeneration and eye infections such as conjunctivitis. What differs is the lower rate of diagnosis for eye diseases and irregularities, which if treatment is not given, often results in long term damage or visual impairment, including blindness.

Symptoms and severity of eye diseases are not easily detected in our dogs or cats. For example, a dog or cat with red eyes and discharge may get treatment for infection, whereas a pet with a continual squint may not get treatment despite having a serious eye condition. 

Signs and symptoms of eye problems requiring immediate treatment may include:

Red eyes

Painful eyes (often associated with squinting, pawing or rubbing at the eye; eye tearing, and appetite or behavior changes)

Cloudy eyes

Yellow discharge

Green discharge

Blood in or around eyes

Excessive tearing

Bulging of the eyes

Dilated pupils

Difference in pupil size between eyes

Pupils that do not react to light changes

Eye inflammation

Other suggestions:

Good nutrition is vital. Feed your pet a premium holistic diet that includes whole foods, vitamins and minerals.

Have your vet check your pet’s eyes during regular check ups

When your pet ventures outside, check when they return for any debris or matter that may affect their eyes. 

Keep your pet's nails trimmed, especially if you have dogs and cats, in the event they get into a disagreement. Keeping nails trimmed can help prevent corneal scratches. 

Conventional Remedies:

One a veterinary examination has determined the type and cause of your pet’s eye problems, natural herbal and homeopathic remedies can be used as an alternative to or in conjunction with conventional treatments, depending on the condition.
