    bathing with salt water and a vet check may be in order? that's if it doesn't clear up pin a few days

    how is she otherwise?

    Mine had it too, if they seem okay other than the sticky eye then bathe it for today, cold tea works wonders as does a little salted water, if it turns green and gooey you may need some drops for the vet, if it is just sticky eyes, Goldendrops are great.

    This is extremely common and there is no cause for alarm. I use chloramphenicol eye ointment.

    Hi Liz,

    Can I ask, I use the same stuff, I have looked around and there seems to be quite a few variations to the one I have..which one do you use and is it prescription only?
    Thanks
