As a young eyeliner sharing teen, I kept getting pink eye (conjunctivitis) and my mom kept bringing in prescriptions to the pharmacist. The pharmacist suggest she just buy a tube of original Neosporin & some Bausch & Lomb eye cleanser to use in the morning & before bed. It cured the pink eye every time. Years later I used it on cats.
Wipe your cats eye down with a moist warm cosmetic pad (squeeze excess water out), and swipe some Neosporin over the lid. 3 times a day is optimal. Always clean the cats eye before applying to rid of excess discharge & old Neosporin traces. Do not buy Neosporin with any added pain relievers or extras. Do not buy generic Neosporin unless it has the same exact ingredients as the Neosporin & all will be well.
Took my kitten to the doctor, as the kitten was very sick with pinkeye and an upper-respiratory infection and I was very nervous. The doctor gave me amoxicillin and triple antibiotic ointment--the same stuff I had at home already (bought fish amoxocillin a week back).
Just for reference, my kitten was around 2 pounds and is seven weeks old. The doctor had me give her 0.2 ml of the amoxocillin twice a day and the triple antibiotic ointment at the same time, twice a day.
Kitten is much, much better. Thought I'd add that Neosporin (without the plus, just regular) is the same exact thing the vet gave me. Same exact thing.
Don't let fear get in the way. Triple antibiotic ointment is fine to use in and around you cats eyes. There's a lot of disinformation on the internet and I'm glad this site has multiple people setting the record straight.
By the way, the amoxicilin the vet gave me is liquid, 50 mg per ml. I have 250 ml pills at home and could have dissolved each pill in 5 ml of water and had the exact same dose.
Lastly, I'm very happy I went to the vet. This information is invaluable and while I did not really have the money for the visit, I'm delighted with the result going forward, especially given that my anxiety and concern has been alleviated.
Hope this helps!
My Cat is 17 years old, He is part of our family and loved very much. We do not have the money to bring him to the vet, as I am a cancer patient and my husband has heart trouble.
Our cat lost so much weight that you can see his bones and I started blending his food. He does eat better and still drinks water. One of his eyes look bad. He does not meow or purr much any more you have to really listen you hear him. Any thoughts on this? Please help me out...Thank you so much..
My child was very often sick with bronchitis, pneumonia, laryngitis. Every time they were treated with antibiotics (www.nextdaypharm.com/antibiotics_drugs_online/) Until a complete examination was completed and one doctor did not find out that the cause was chlamydia, which my husband and I did not have. Under the guidance of this doctor healed. Now the child is healthy and full of energy
