Do these kittens look unhealthy?

Do these kittens look unhealthy?

Post by Fireo2017 » Wed Jun 21, 2017 7:22 pm

Hi there, I was planning to purchase these kittens from a local breeder, but my colleague said they appear to have some form.of eye infection possibly feline herpes virus?
I contacted the breeder asking if they have been vet checked but they said the kittens are too young atm( 5 weeks)

Here is a picture

Its not unusual to have a bit of eye gunk at that age, but they aren't too young to have a vet check

Hi and welcome :)

Their eyes look nice and clear to me but is that a bit of discharge round their nostrils? Possibly nothing but be careful.

Lovely little guys, do hope you bring one or two home, please let us know how you go on and good luck :)

They look healthy enough (and gorgeous). Might just be sleep.
