Hi Everyone

Max, my 4 months old kitten has been given Isathal eye drops 6 days ago, as one of his eyes was very watery. the vet said he’s got conjunctivitis in both eyes so advised to give him eye drops 2 x per day. It’s been now 6 days and I’ve seen a mild progress for a few days to start with , but now his eye started to run again :-(

Just to mention, that when we got him 5 wks ago, he was put on antibiotics for 2 wks due to URI.
That has cleared, but a week after antibiotics his eye started to get watery.

Does it mean he perhaps needs another set of antibiotics?

Thank you for all your kind responses,
Gabby & Max

Bless, maybe max needs to go back to vet just so they can examine his eyes again, to ensure the infection is away! Binky has had conjunctivitis once, after it cleared up, I used eye bright which is a herb, you make tea with to clean her eyes! I do it every week now and the rest of the days I just use wet cotton pads and she’s never had an eye infection again! I hope wee Max’s clear up soon! Xxx

Sorry his eyes are not clearing up quickly. I have found erythromycin ointment has worked better than any drops in our home. Maybe you can chat with your vet if this might help.

I'm not a vet and don't have much experience with the breed yet but sending a lot of positive healing vibes your way!
If necessary or if it makes you feel better you can always give your vet a call and ask his opinion (calls often can bring some helpful into without having to pay for a visit :) ) good luck!

Also good results with erythomycin
Idoxurine and oflaaxcin for my other kitty

Doxycline antibiotic has worked well for my crew better then some other Antibiotics
( I use good RX , Sam's club amd Walgreens to price compare and ask vet to call it in )

You can discuss these with your vet and get their professional opinion on these mentioned

All paws crossed amd positive vibes
Keep us updated

Head smooches to Max

Does the vet think it's allergies to litter etc

Do some supportive care like L lysine and the eyebright solution works very well. But, it does not hurt to contact your vet and let them know the progress and they can give you an idea if he needs to be seen again.
