Customer Question

My cat's eye is weepy and a little swollen the last day or two. Should I bring him into the vet. I have tried a warm compress on his eye a couple times but it doesn't seem to be helping. Should i try to wash it out with a natural solution of salt and water?

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your kitty! Is the discharge from the eye clear or colored? Does the eye or the inside of the lid appear red at all?
