Q. Merry Christmas~ My Out door Cat HAS A TEARING LEFT EYE.Is there a over the counter med I can get ans apply.I have no job ans very little cash,thanks~

A. If the eye or eyelid has a tear your cat will need to see a veterinarian for treatment. Do NOT attempt to place any over the counter medications on the eye without veterinary approval as this could further damage the eye to the point of blindness or loss of the eye. If you are unable to afford veterinary care you may want to speak with your local humane society for assistance.
