I have 2 cats & one of them has a watery drainage coming from her left eye (about 2x a week). I also notice that part of the eyelid is reddish. I don't have $ to take her to my vet. Can you give me some tips until I can do that?
Drew Weigner, DVM, ABVP responded:
While there are many causes of eye discharge in cats, the most common is a viral infection. These often resolve after a few days. If the discharge from her eye is clear or reddish brown, keep her eyes clean with a soft cloth moistened with warm water. If it's yellowish or greenish, or if the eye is very inflamed, or if it lasts more than three days, she needs to see her veterinarian.
