• My cat is has a white liquid coming from his eyelid and had difficulty opening it until it was cleaned.

    Hi Janet,
    If the liquid and squinting have continued, I recommend that you take your cat into see a veterinarian. The symptoms that you are describing can be caused by a few different things including an eye infection, injury, or even a more serious issue like glaucoma. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the symptoms after they have examined your pet.  They may need to perform some specialized eye tests to help diagnose or rule out certain causes. The treatment needed will depend on the underlying cause and severity of your cat’s symptoms.
