Kitten Has Swollen Eye With Discharge

Our cat had 6 kittens 5 days ago and their eyes aren't even open yet, but one of them has a swollen eye with some discharge, the cheek below that eye is a little swollen too. Should I take him to the vet or will warm water and neosporin be enough treatment for now?

If you do not know what caused the problem, you cannot provide the correct treatment. Your idea is fine if you are absolutely sure it will correct the problem. However, it may or may not work and, while you are waiting, your puppy will most probably be getting worse. Please take the pup to your vet now for diagnosis and treatment. Also, the problem could be contagious so having a vet check the pup now will help.

I would take him to the vet. A kitten this young is very vulnerable and the infection could spread or at the very least he could lose the sight in that eye.

Eye infections are common in kittens. However, antibiotics must be prescribed. If it is not treated properly the kitten could lose sight in the eye.


If you had an infection in your eye, you would probably not just put Neosporin on it. At least I hope not.
