Kitten eye gunk
I have a 7 week old baby kitten and her eye is red and goopy. It has even started to shut a little. this has been going on for a few days. I made an appointment with the vet but I couldn't get her in until the 12th. I've been keeping it clean with warm water and a rag. Is there anything else I can do until her visit. I don't have the money to take her to the emergency clinic. I'm terrified she's going to lose her eye. She is eating fine and playing as well. Any advice?

Unfortunately you probably can't wait. The likelyhood that the eye will be damaged, the infection will spread to the other eye, is high. Are their other vets in the area?

What your kitten needs is antibiotics. Now, you can, if it's a real emergency, give a cat amoxicillin (children's Amox is what some vet's use) if you have some available. If you decide to try this, let me know.

I'm not saying it's a great idea, but when your facing a high chance (almost guaranteed) of blindness, it's the better risk to take.
