    last week my kitten had his first injections and and his left eye was a little red and had some yellow/green gunk(for want of a better word) coming out of it so they gave me some drops it seemed to clear up but it has come back slighlty in that eye and in the other now should i use the drops in both eyes or is it another trip to the vets??

    Did you treat both eyes, that is what is normally advised? Doing this might resolve issue, but it may be that if eyes don't respond you'll need to have a swab taken to find out what is causing discharge. Then appropriate antibiotics given.

    Hope you hear from vet soon and get kitty sorted :)

    No they olny said to put them in his left eye but he must of passed it onto his right one.

    They rang back a few hours ago to say i coud use drops i have in right eye as well,they look better today so fingers crossed a few more days of drops and they will be ok. Poor little man think he is always going to be poorly, on the plus side i have got him to eat meat and its the same as Rhubarb's double plus and last night they spent about 10 mins curled up together with no fighting :eek: Rhubarb was giving him a right good wash and he just lay there nodding off to sleep :001_wub:

    Are you bathing his eyes with warm water to keep the gunk clear? If so can I just mention to use a fresh 'swab' for each eye to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. If you are already doing this, I apologise for trying to teach you to suck eggs. :D

    Merson has a history of dodgy eyes and I've gone through this soooo many times... :(
