Q. My cat has entropion of the eyes. Vet did surgery on both eyes, the right eye seems ok but the left eye is still running/mucus. Can I use Neosporin?
JESSICA L DESROSIERS
A. Do NOT use Neosporin on cats or dogs as this product can be toxic to pets if ingested. If the eye is still leaking or has green or yellow discharge it is best to contact your veterinarian. Green or yellow discharge can indicate that a secondary infection has formed and may require antibiotics or cat-safe ointments to help clear it up. In the meantime, you can use a warm wet washcloth to remove any excess debris from the eye very gently, allowing the eye to open and help with healing.
