Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical and may involve the following:

Administer prescribed medication(s) as directed and be certain to alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet. Repeated trips to your veterinarian are important in order to monitor the pressure within the eye and to make adjustments in medications.

Understand the medications that your pet is on and what each one is used for. Ask your veterinarian about potential side effects to the drugs and how to monitor for those side effects. Also ask your veterinarian about alternate plans should side effects be experienced by your cat.

Be aware that both the underlying chronic uveitis, as well as the glaucoma, are diseases that may require long-term therapy and monitoring.
