Customer Question
My nine months old...

My nine months old cat has conjunctivitis. He has been treated for the condition a week ago. It has returned. We are waiting for the Medical Director of the shelter where we got him to get back to us.What can I do now?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?

It is nine months old cat. Can someone help please?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

OK, I did not see that message previously, sorry.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

His eye looks pinkish around the rim, it is watering clear liquid. He keeps it shut most of the time. When it is open, it seems pretty normal. Doesn't seem to be having any pain.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Skimbleshanks, but I have been calling him Alfie.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Skimbleshanks?

There is another cat adopted at the same time, Fozzie who is five months . Skimbleshanks purrs a lot, loves petting, is eating well. seems not to be bothered by the eye. But me on the other hand...
