If your cat refuses his eye or ear drops, talk to your vet about good techniques and tips for making the process easier. Sometimes practice, reassurance and lots of treats can make a rocky process into a smooth one. If you’re having trouble with ear medication, try tricks like warming it up a little first, feeding your cat treats or food while you administer it, and lots of petting and reassurance before, during and after the process. Likewise with eye medication: lightly warming the medication, giving treats and pets, plus a soft touch as you apply can go a long way in making your cat more comfortable with the process. If you’re still having trouble after a few days, your vet may be able to prescribe a different medication—possibly an oral medication or a less irritating formula—for your kitty.
