My little man has FVR and has had a lot of breakouts. His eyes get this cloudy look to them and he has trouble seeing, and sometimes he even gets these dark marks in his iris. We have pet insurance and his meds are super cheap, but the problem is he hates the carrier (he broke the door off and made his paws bleed last time). He doesn't adjust well to change is very neurotic, so trips to the vet are awful. Plus, when I have to give him his eye medication he will run from me and hide. I have to give the eye drops 3x a day for 10 days every time he has a breakout and it makes him hate me. I have to wrap him in a blanket to give them to him or he attacks me and every time I move he will run to hide (even if he just had the drops). This continues for a couple of weeks after I stop giving them to him too and his sister reacts the same way because she can't handle him being stressed either.
Does anyone else have a cat with FVR and if so, how do you deal with the breakouts? Is there anything I can do to help prevent them or at least cut down on the number of occurrences?
Any advice or resources would be awesome!
