My cat had ringworm and nail fungus 5 years ago, she is much better now, but can’t get rid of watery eyes and excessive mucous in mouth at all times. Would you have an idea what this is, she was tested for all cat diseases and nothing came up, never tested for lyme though Thanks.
Watery eyes in cats can occur from chronic respiratory diseases, primarily Herpes virus and Calici virus. Both of these viruses can cause watery eyes, drooling, nasal discharge and sometimes fever, loss of appetite and depression. These are not common signs of Lymes disease, especially in felines. If you are in an area with high exposure, please discuss the need for a test.
I recommend Immugen by Thorne for feline upper respiratory issues. It enhances immune function and decrease symptoms in times of stress. Please keep in mind that a high quality diet with whole meat proteins and no food dyes or preservatives will help keep her immune system as healthy as possible.
