I’m also not a fan of the anti-viral eye drops. Sometimes eyebright can help these guys. Animal Apawthecary sells an eye and nose drop that contains it. It can be used as a tincture given orally or the homeopathic form can be used as well. Lysine is very hit or miss – I’ve seen it help some. Lowering stress can also help so if a little rescue remedy in the water can go a long way with these guys.

Sometimes it just takes time for the eyes to clear also. One of my cats is chronic herpes and I don’t usually give her anything unless she is really bad which is not very often luckily. Most of the time her eyes clear on their own.

This is other of those quite hard to treat diseases.
