What’s the matter with a lot of eye feces in cat eyes?
Cats have a lot of excrement in their eyes, red around the eye sockets, and tears are secreted, indicating that the eyes are inflamed, which may be conjunctivitis or keratitis. There is a lot of yellow-green discharge around the eyes: it may be dry eye or conjunctivitis. There are many eye feces and photophobia, which may be conjunctivitis or glaucoma.
Cats with a lot of eye feces are normal
When cats just wake up, they will have some black dry eye feces attached to the corners of their eyes just like humans. Just wipe them off gently. There is no need to worry about such secretions.
Cats have a lot of eye feces, abnormal conditions
If the cat’s eye sockets are red and excessive tears are secreted, it means that the corners of the eyes are inflamed. In severe cases, yellow-green secretions will appear at the corners of the eyes or around the eye sockets, and these pus- like secretions will attach to the eyelids, and even stick the cat’s upper and lower eyelids, making the eyes unable to open. Some cats will make their eyes bigger and smaller because of eye pain and photophobia, or they will wash their face with their front feet all the time. These actions may make the eye condition worse.
Cats with a lot of eye feces should seek medical attention in time
Therefore, when you find that your cat’s eyes are secreted or cannot be opened, you can use a wet cotton swab to wipe around the eyes to keep the eyes clean, and before the symptoms worsen, take it to the hospital for examination.
The immunity of young cats is worse than that of adult cats, so eye diseases caused by viral infections are prone to become serious. If you don’t take it to the hospital for treatment in time, you may even lose your eyesight or have to remove your eyeballs.
Many people think that it is normal for Persian cats or exotic shorthair cats to shed tears easily, but this is not true. There is a nasolacrimal duct between the cat’s eyes and nose. When the nasolacrimal duct becomes blocked due to slow inflammation, excessive tearing will form. In addition, eye inflammation caused by viral infection may cause excessive tearing, so take your cat to the hospital for examination before it becomes a chronic infection.
