update on kittens eyes...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i took the kittens to the vet...i had a few qs and felt it was time anyhow for a check up...well....the eye problem i was worried about was a good reason to bring them in...see although no other symptoms were present the vet checked them thuroughly and said that they have acute upper respitory infection so now i give them their anibiotics twice a day....eye goop has cleared up on every kitten just after two dosed...now about the hair missing around eye...well it was too soon to tell but when i brought them in and looked at them for the first time after being at work all day i knew it was more than i thought in the beginning which was momma licking her too much in that spot...it was ringworm....now looking closer at the others some have it and all will get it so i have medicated wash to give to them twice a week....at their age the vet said this is what will work best...i dont mind washing the kittens its the momma cat that frightens me .... i will be taking the vets advice on the best way to wash a scared cat...and i will be in some protective gear ha ha ....so please anyone out there with the same problem i experienced and even those similar it never hurts to get them checked by the vet...sometimes symptoms are silent

The vet is almost set to cruise control on our cat. Also speed dial.

So glad you went to the vet.

I'm glad you took them in after all - seems like you had the same experience as me: goopy eyes leading to a discovery of a respiratory ailment. Sorry to hear about the ringworms, but I guess it's great that this was all found out early on. I don't envy you having to dip the momma cat - that's gotta be a hassle!

Anyhow, glad they are all doing better. That ointment is amazing, isn't it?

oh yes the vet has gotten them all fixed up for the most part...the antibiotics cleared the sickness away in a few days.....still giving them their treatments and some of the ringworm is getting much better........all is going great!!
