I think conjunctivitis would have to be treated with topical ointment from the vet.... wouldn't it?
post #3 of 11
I think conjunctivitis is treated with antibiotics and eye cream or drops. It has been awhile since I had a kitten who had conjunctivitis. I know it was a vet visit for the kitten.

There is Cream for that and it works good.

Would the human variety of opthamalic Polysporin work...just a few dabs?

I would be afraid to use the human medication. Especially on a kitten. The strength could be different and there may be other additives that might be harmful. Call the vet and ask their advice. Maybe they can tell you something over the phone that will be helpful without going for a vet visit.

Lysine may help. When mine were kittens the vet started them on it at about 8 weeks. Hope everyone is better soon.

Well, tea has some medicinal properties... If it works, well, good for it! A lot cheaper than the vet!

Im always partial on letting the vets handle things! I DID however once give human eye drops for similar condition to my cats when they had it, and it did help! Probably not the smartest thing I ever did but when my cats had ringworm I treated them forever with cat meds, when I went to walmart and got some for humans and put it on them it went away right away! Good luck!!
