Hi, I am Dr. Peter and would like to help. In response to your question, your cat has conjunctivitis and needs topical ophthalmic antibiotics. You can not get the medication without a prescription from your veterinarian. You could try taking her to a shelter where their fee's are lower than private practice. In the meantime, pick up over the counter eyewash in any pharmacy and use it to irrigate and clean the eye 2-3 times a day.

 

If you have additional questions I will be glad to answer them.
