Treating A Kitten With Eye Discharge

About three days ago I found a kitten in my back yard, and I kept her. When we first got her she was fine, then her eyes started crusting shut! To keep her clean I have to wash her eyes with a washcloth three times a day! It doesn't seem like eye discharge, but I can't think of anything else that it would be, what do I do?

The vet will probably prescribe an antibiotic that is used in the eyes a few times a day. You can also find out if your kitten is old enough to start vaccinations, and schedule your spay or neuter.

I found an abandonéd kitten still with his umbilical cord on I am assuming about 4 days old and tried to help him. His eyes showed infection, they were swollen and full of crust. The vet prescribed antibiotic drops twice a day and helped a lot. He is now 10 days old and thriving on kitten formula but his eyes seem cloudy, off and as if they were about to pop out. Does this mean he cant see ? Or is it too early to find out? I will be taking him to the vet in about a week again but I am worried and would like to know if he has any chance.

Your kitty may have an eye infection that definitely needs treatment. Please take her to your vet immediately. Delaying treatment can worsen the problem and your kitty will suffer needlessly.
