Re: FIV cat with recurrent eye infection

I don't have an FIV cat, but several of us here have oldies with dodgy kidneys and arthritis and use Metacam for pain relief (for quality of life), but keep an eye on kidney function.

The vets have checked his eyes and can't find any foreign bodies, scratches...
