Q. My kittens eye is discharging major eye boogers in one eye. Is it infected or irritated and how can I treat it?

Answered By

A. If the discharge is green then the most likely your kitten has bacterial conjunctivitis and will need antibiotics to get better. You should take him/her to your vets to confirm diagnosis and to get treatment

Answered By

A. You can try clearing them and rinsing them with water. If it continues or the white of the eye looks red then it probably is infected and should be checked by your vet. Eye problems shouldn't be left too long without veterinary treatment as some conditions can cause irreversible damage.
