Absolutely , my vet was the one who suggested me it and it saved me money and worked just as fast and effective as what the vet would prescribe to you , its called polysporin eye cream you can get it at any pharmacy but you will not find it in any of the isles you have to ask the pharmacist for it it costs around $9.00 can and you do not need a priscription to get it , I use it faithfully anytime my cats run into an eye infection , call a vet they will tell you the same thing and if they suggest you bring your pet in for an evaluation , find another vet cause clearly they are all about the dollar bill !!
No, this medication needs to be prescribed by a veterinarian. Do not use human ocular medication in cats. There are certain ophthalmic antibiotics that can be harmful to cats but are used in other species. Conjunctivitis is often part of feline upper respiratory infection complex. This may need further treatment as well. Kittens should be receiving routine veterinary care during their vaccination series as well.
My friend just uses normal human eye infection medicine the one in the tube and it seems to work but don't try this with any other human medicine because its not meant for animals because they have more sensitive skin I'm pretty sure its allot cheaper and if its safe for our eyes its bound to be safe for your cat, you can also use baby shampoo on pets as well because its gentle on their skin. Hoped this helps.
Well, you can use non-steroid neosporin. Just put a glob on a Q-tip and put it on the kittens eye. DO NOT RUB!! This cannot cure the kittens infection but it will make the kitten more comfortable, and will make it less painful. But you will have to reapply it because the neosporin only lasts so long. This is only temporary until you can get something from your vet. And if the vet wants you to come in to the office they probably just want to charge you more money.
