So...I have a cat who's eye looks scratched. Its not infected. It just looks irritated and watery. I'm guessing its a scratch based on the last 2 times I dealt with eye scratches. Plus we've had herpes outbreaks several times and this doesn't seem to be herpes. So with that being said I've been given medicine for scratched eyes and for herpes, and I stupidly took them out of the prescription bottle a while back and that had a cat's name on it so I just have the actual medicine container now. My hope was to read the cat's name so I could remember which cat I gave which medicine too.
I have erythromycin ophthalmic ointment and NeoPolyDex ophthalmic drops. I've been googling, but all I keep finding is just that they are medicines used to treat eye infections in cats. I've used both for herpes outbreaks, which the vet said was fine to do, but I know that one of these was specifically prescribed the last time i had a cat with a probable eye scratch. So does anyone know which one I'm supposed to use? I'm hoping to treat this at home, while keeping an eye on it in case it does end up worse.
