Treating a Kitten with Eye Discharge?

My kitten is 4 weeks old. He has a green discharge coming from both of his eyes. I don't have money to take him to the vet. What can I do?

Hi,

These are very common in kittens.

If you can afford to go to PetSmart, and get some fish antibiotics, in capsule form, do that. Then take a small pinch of the powder, and put mix it in corn syrup.Then smear it on the kittens foot, near its mouth.

Do this three times a day. The kitten may or may not lick it off his foot. If he doesn't wash it off. It could attract ants.

Medicine: the triple antibiotic ointment, and I mean OINTMENT,and not cream, at the dollar store, is comforting to put on the eyes of kittens that have eye infections. Place a dab over the eye while the eye is closed, 3 or 4 5 times a day. It can take around three weeks to work.

If you can't afford to do any of the above, gently wipe the kittens eyes with warm water, several times a day. Bless them, their immune systems are so weak at this early time in their little lives.

You need to work out a payment plan with the vet. Eye infections can lead to blindness. Take the cat to the ASPCA for a reduced fee.

I've had multiple rescue kittens with gooky eyes. I have always taken to the vet, and was given antibiotics and eye ointment. The vet also let me in on a little secret: a small dab of Neosporin (or generic triple antibiotic ointment) rubbed onto kitty's eyes will help. Do not rub it into eyes... Gently rub it across eyelid along the edge.

I would be very careful about dosing a kitten with fish antibiotics. It is very hard to know what dose they are actually getting, and what antibiotics are safe for them. The Neosporin ointment (not cream) would be a better bet.

If your kitten does not respond to it be sure and call your humane society to see if they have reduced cost care for your kitten. Drs. Foster and Smith sell an antibiotic eye ointment in their catalog.
