Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. In regards ***** ***** description, it does sound like we have a bacterial conjunctivitis in one eye and this is just causing secondary tearing/irritation to the other. Though I'd note that if we have it in one, it will often spread to the other when the groom their sore eyes.In regards ***** ***** sterile saline is good for reducing the bacterial population and discharges present but if this is persisting then we'd tend to need a local vet dispense antibiotic drops to clear the infection. If she was seen and her vet did note this, you may be able to ring for drops. Otherwise, it would be ideal to have her seen so that they can make sure there are no underlying issues (ie flu viruses, corneal damage, etc) and can get her started on antibiotic drops to settle this for her.
