Our question this week was:My cat's eyes are runny and his third eye is showing. What could be wrong with him?
Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote that your cat's eyes were running and his third eyelid is showing. There are several reasons for cats to have "runny eyes" ranging from conjunctivitis caused by a viral or bacterial infection, a foreign body, a corneal ulcer, glaucoma as well as other problems.
I'd recommend that you have your cat evaluated at your veterinary to help determine the underlying problem. I'd hate to overlook it if there is something serious going on.

", and "Corneal Ulcerations
Best of luck!
