Urgent: Drop of Hydrogen Peroxide in Cat's Eye

Hello :imp:I was using 3% hydrogen peroxide solution to clean an infected cut on my cat’s forehead when it unexpectedly fizzed up and a drop got into his eye. I removed the peroxide with a paper towel soaked in warm water and then cleansed the cat’s eye with saline solution. When I move my finger toward the injured eye, the cat flinches and the eye appears fine. When I accidentally dropped a tissue in his peripheral, he likewise reacted.

Does the cat need to go to the vet?

If the eye has been thoroughly flushed and he’s not showing any signs of discomfort, it’s probably fine.

But… stop using hydrogen peroxide on wounds. It’s not meant for wound care as it damages healthy tissue.
