Eye Infection in Cats

Products for: Eye Infections

The eyes of a cat is no different than a human in how they function, and  a feline can develop the same eye problems as people.

Conjunctivitis – commonly know as Pink Eye  is one of the most common eye issues in cats.  Pink Eye in cats is caused by the feline herpesvirus1, which is a very common ailment in cats.  Other causes may be due to environmental irritants, or an infection, which cause the inflammation of the conjunctival membrane or a foreign object. If only one eye is affected the cause may be an allergen or environmental irritant that has gotten into the eye, dry eye, and inflammation of the tear sac.  Conjunctivitis in both eyes may indicate a bacterial or viral infection. Conjunctivitis may be a secondary symptom of another eye disease. Symptoms include

                Pink or red eye 

Mucoid discharge or a clear watery discharge

Excessive blinking

Swelling of the eye

Additional Support
Always consult a vet if you suspect your dogs has an eye infection.  Flushing the eye out with  cold water may help flush out foreign particles.
