i have a 2 month old juvenile pet red vented bulbul. She is having watery eyes, red and swollen. I think she has a mycoplasma(conjunctivitis) infection.what should i do?
We constantly clean it but it keeps coming back. See him squinting often since yesterday. We plan to take him to the vet but I just wanted advice. He had conjunctivitis when we got him (he was a kitten) in August 2015.
She had them before when she was very young and we were given antibiotics for her. I can’t afford to take her to get treated right now but her fur is shedding bad and she’s itchy. She’s started biting the fur off of her tail and her skin is constantly dry. We still have the shampoo but we need something in conjunction with that. Thanks!
I do not want to over medicate my dog with steroids if they are not normally given in conjunction with the anti bacterial medication.
My younger 3 year old cat Chunk has been having eye discharge for a few months. He uses the bathroom just fine, eats just fine, seems to be playful and very aware. The discharge is predominantly in one eye although it happens in the other too. It is a brown / rusty red color that seeps from the inner tear ducts. His eye looks okay when you look up close but Im no DVM. (He has been tested for FIV as well as Herpes in prior checkups years ago and tested negative). He doesn’t sneeze, although he does breathe some what heavy but that could also be attributed to his Chunky frame (working on it). I’ve read several possibilities including herpes, conjunctivitis, and respiratory infection. I am hoping this is something that can be resolved through an ointment like terramycin? Any recommendations / suggestions / advice? Thank you!
*Also may be beneficial to note my other rescue Captain Hook has one eye. The non working eye is flipped backward and does not function. As a result that one eye has always had blackish discharge (not the same color as chunks nor does it come out in the same way as chunks). Our vet said this is normal for his eye condition, but just wanted to mention because perhaps could be related? Or no?
Disclaimer *My cats are indoor cats on a strict wet food diet. Chunk is 3 and Captain Hook is 7. I take them to the vet when needed. Their last general checkups were two years ago. I realize they need to go every year, but my cat Captain Hook had many many medical problems (bowel disorders) so thousands of dollars in care credit we try not to take them unless needed, especially since they are indoor.
My dog has conjunctivitis in one of his eyes, is it safe to give him an eye spray for pets purchased at a pet store before taking him to the vet?
As i have stated it is not that noticeable….we are just wondering if we should be concerned about this. We do have one other kitty in the house who had conjunctivitis when we first got him. I have not seen any discharge coming from Mitsy’s eye though. Is this a cause for concern?
Thank you for viewing and any expertise would be greatly appreciated. Have a great day everyone!
