I have 2 cats in my house, both Ragdolls, age 6-7 months each. The older one of the two has recurring eye discharge which you can see in the images: https://imgur.com/a/NjC5CTF .

First he had this issue with the right eye, after treatment with Aureomycin (chlortetracycline hydrochloride 10mg/g) for 5 days (morning and evening) it passed.

I think at that treatment both cats got treatment for 10 days for herpes as well.

But then it started in the left eye, he had 1 treatment that made it go away for a week, then it came again. Now after the second treatment (of the left eye) it's back again.

I've been to the vet, he gave me the Aureomycin, so before going back to the vet I could use any help to understand what he got and why it keeps getting back.

  • What are other symptoms? Does he have nose discharge, saliva discharge (drooling), loss of appetite or fever? – Sonevol Nov 15 '18 at 7:41
  • Has your vet conducted any lab test? Is your cat is of general weak health and earlier also suffered from other diseases? – Sonevol Nov 15 '18 at 7:44
  • hi @Sonevol, sorry for the late reply, no nose discharge or saliva, great appetite, no fever. Healthy cat and no known other diseases. Cat had blood tests but nothing extreme was found. – Captain_Meow_Meow Nov 19 '18 at 6:26
  • It's been a month, how is your kitten now? Still dealing with the discharge? Any other treatments? – elbrant Dec 17 '18 at 17:02
  • @elbrant well 3 weeks ago we took him to the vet for ear treatment (allot of brown stuff in the ears) + a week of ear drops, on the same time we also switched food. and after a few days it was down to a normal cat eye discharge. not sure if it was the ear issue or maybe the food gave him allergy. – Captain_Meow_Meow Feb 11 '19 at 12:01
