Conjunctivitis – also known as pink eye – is a common eye condition in cats. It is characterized by inflammation of the conjunctiva, a thin membrane that covers the front of the eye and the inside of the eyelid. Conjunctivitis can be caused by a variety of factors such as infections, allergies, and irritants. In this guide, we’ll discuss the symptoms, causes, and natural treatments for conjunctivitis in cats.
The symptoms of conjunctivitis in cats can vary depending on the underlying cause. Some common signs of conjunctivitis include:
- Redness or swelling of the eye
- Discharge from the eye
- Squinting or blinking more than usual
- Cloudiness or opacity of the eye
- Sensitivity to light
- Rubbing or pawing at the eye
- Excessive tearing
Conjunctivitis in cats can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Viral and bacterial infections: Feline herpesvirus and Chlamydia felis are common viral and bacterial causes of conjunctivitis in cats.
- Allergies: Environmental allergens such as pollen, dust, and mold can cause conjunctivitis in cats.
- Irritants: Chemical irritants such as cleaning products, smoke, and perfume can cause conjunctivitis in cats.
