My baby has a swollen eye and infection. We took her to the vet yesterday and it was so swollen the vet couldn't see in the eye to see what was causing the symptoms so we have to go back tomorrow after we give her some antibiotics and steriods to get rid of the swelling. Has anyone had a similar experience in so worried about her :( the photo with her eye partly open is it after 2 treatments of the drops and antibiotics and all that the vet prescribed

The drops are called "ciloxan" (ciprofloxacin hydrochloride) the oral pills are called "metacam" (meloxicam) and "clavaseptin"

My kitty had one swollen eye the other day -
It was cleared up completely witihin two days with flushing with vetericyn VF opthalmic wash ( VF original ) Vetericyn Ophthalmic Wash for Pets, 2-oz bottle - Chewy.com
and then applying terramycin opthalmic ointment a couple of time so day. Both avail online at various sites/prices

Poor thing. That looks pretty miserable. FYI meloxicam is not a steroid, it is an NSAID. NSAIDs are not recommended for cats as they can cause kidney issues.

Oh my goodness, the 2nd pic, looks like she had a blister
next to her nose. Bless her heart. I pray she get's well quickly.
Please keep us updated.

@Kink ouch that looks painfull. Glad to hear that after two treatments the eye already looks much better.
It looks a bit like the infection my boy Toa has but only worse. He gets it from dust or other things like hayfever. I give him drops everyday. Also cleaning his eyes with a cottonball with warm water helps.

Sending healing vibes to your girl.

Yes, I have had this happen and it can come on quick. Don't feel bad just make sure you do full round of treatment and it will pass. Hope your kit feels better soon
