At QVC we take eye issues very seriously, not just because we can save eyes if we examine them soon enough but also because they can be excruciatingly painful and animals need pain medication.
At the first sign of any eye issue please book your furbaby in to be seen. Not all eye issues are the same and the treatment varies greatly. Not only that, but animals are often very good at hiding their pain so that they don’t appear vulnerable. If you have ever had any eye problem you will know, it isn’t pain free and certainly and eyeball swollen with pus is not something that will respond to an over the counter eye salve.
Unilateral (one sided) conjunctivitis typically is seen with foreign bodies or trauma. Other causes of conjunctivitis (especially bilateral) can be due to viral infections such as feline herpes or bacteria such as mycoplasma or herpes.
Any foreign body affecting the eye can cause trauma to the cornea by scratching the surface of it.
Please give us a call to get the correct diagnosis and treatment: it could save an eye and a life 👀❤️
