Q. My cat(8 yrs. old) Her eye's seem to take turns watering. One day it will be the right, the next the left. I think it allergies but not sure.

A. It could be allergies, but it could also be a viral/bacterial eye infection. I would advise going to the vet in order to get eye drops in order to rule out an infection, if the drops don't work then it is probably allergies.

In that case, the cause of the allergy needs to be investigated and anti histamines can be prescribed.
