Like humans, senior pets can develop eye issues in their later years. Because older dogs and cats have weaker immune systems than younger pets, this makes them more prone to a variety of eye ailments.
- Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
- Corneal disorders
- Epiphora (excessive tearing)
- Foreign objects lodged in the eye
- Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (dry eye)
- Third eyelid issues
- Upper respiratory infections
- Uveitis (inner eye inflammation), and more
If your senior dog or cat does develop any eye issues, it’s always advisable to visit your vet. You can also add Eye Senior from Epic Pet Health to your home pet healthcare toolbox. My mom used that on her lady cat of a certain age, and it worked wonders.
How a Mature Lady Cat Got Relief with Eye Senior
At age 18 (92 in human years), my parents Maine Coon rescue kitty, Molly, is still a beauty. And she never even had any work done! She’s also in excellent health. But shortly after she celebrated her birthday in June 2017, she developed an unsightly brown discharge in her left eye. Not only did this mar her legendary beauty, it was also irritating.
Molly’s vet determined that this was a result of excessive tearing, caused by a weakened tear duct due to aging. He recommended that my mom simply wipe the eye with warm water on a cotton pad on a regular basis. However, the issue persisted. So I gave my mom Eye Senior from Epic Pet Health. This concentrated formula is a combination of several Epic Pet Health products that support senior pet eye health. It can also help to alleviate a variety of eye problems that afflict senior pets.
How Eye Senior Works
This all-natural pet remedy contains a variety of safe, holistic ingredients: Water, alkaline minerals (zinc, magnesium, potassium, calcium, other trace minerals) and electrolytes (vitamins A, B, D, E, C and oxygen). Simply spray directly in the pet’s face − it does not sting, and is refreshing. For fastest results, one should also put this in food and water, and use three or more times daily until results are achieved.
Molly would not tolerate having this sprayed in her face. So my mom spritzed some on a cotton pad and wiped her eye two to three times a day. She also sprayed this in Molly’s food and water. Within a week, Molly was back to her old glamourpuss self, as you can see from the after picture below.
Epic Pet Health Loves Mature Pups and Kitties
This is just one of the many fine senior Epic Pet Health Products that specifically address dog and cat issues that come with aging. In fact, company founder Amy Swartz began making her natural remedies for her own 17-year-old dog, Lucas.
Amy previously was a civil engineer who later became a holistic chiropractor, who inherited Lucas from a relative. Lucas had a host of age-related issues, but refused to take any remedies that had an odor. So Amy invented supplements with vitamin electrolytes that are odorless and tasteless, and rapidly absorbed by the body.
The remedies worked so well at relieving Lucas’s arthritis pain, old dog cough and eye issues that in 2012, Amy decided to launch Epic Pet Health. She has since created formulas that address a variety of pet health and behavior issues that have helped thousands of dogs and cats of all ages to live healthier, happier, longer lives.
