Is your cat sneezing, too? Or just watery eyes with discharge? Please don't use Eye Mo on your cat. It's not meant for cats. If you need to clean her eyes, please wet a piece of cotton wool with Saline and then gently wipe her eyes with it. Saline is gentle, used for rinsing contact lenses, and you can easily buy a small bottle at Watson Guardian or any pharmacy.

Hi Azmah Hanum,

Do not use Eye-mo! Our human medicine won't work on them.

Your cat might be having eye infection. Try wet a clean cloth with warm water and clean around her eye whenever you see the tears coming out. If it doesn't get better in 1 or 2 days, it might be some allergy, better bring her to a vet then.

Hello, Azmah Hanum --

I agree with Kuntum: I think it's time to take your cat to the vet! You mentioned that it's been a week since you saw the first symptoms, and it's not only the eyes -- the cat also sleeps a lot, doesn't play, has no energy... it sounds to me like there's something more than a simple eye irritation here.

Good luck to you and your cat!

Red face Re: Help My Kitten Got Something In Her Eye!!

Thanks guys,
last nite i googled for vets so already brought her to the clinic at upm. Yeah kinda figured about not using eye mo but i didnt know i'm supposed to use saline thanks a lot..Got loads of saline at home since i'm a contact lens user..Went for a check n the doctor said she had flu, herpes or something the doc told me to get her vaccinated because the bacteria would remain in her body once she got it kinda like chicken pox to us human right..The doc said she's a bit pale..(I still dont understand since she ate a LOT..)..even the doc found it weird that only her left eye is infected. The doc gave her medication (i cant remember the name) n an eye drop. I dont think she like the medicine though becoz her saliva is like everywhere when the doc force her to swallow it (i think even i swallowed a bit of her medicine lol..)..anyway when she arrived home she went to sleep in her fav box (which i keep all my plastic bags)..When she woke up just now she seems a bit better and theres no more taik mata (x tau taik mata in english )..hope she recovers though..by the way the doc told me to wait until her eye heals before i can get her vaccinated..anybody knows where is the cheapest place for vaccination?..i ask upm they told me its RM45 when i ask the vet's near my house it's RM30..

Feline Herpes Virus la tu...sebab tu kucing perlukan L-lysine dalam makanan dorang...
Yup, better kena vaccine lepas dia sihat dari sakit. RM 30 adalah harga normal untuk vaccine.

Azmah,

Some antibiotics will cause the cat to foam or 'drool', that's why your cat had saliva everywhere. Sometimes, they will also vomit out the medicine.

For me, personally, I find it works best when I shove the pill all the way into the cat's throat making sure the pill doesn't touch their tongue. This will prevent the saliva from drooling out.

P/s: If you need to clean her eyes in future, remember it's Saline, NOT the 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 contact lens disinfecting solution. Very important!
