Causes of Pet Eye Infections

There are two main causes of pet eye infections: viruses and bacteria. Bacterial infections are common after an injury or an ulcer. Any injury in the eye, like a scratch, creates an opening through which bacteria can enter the eye. Bacterial infections may also occur when infected foreign bodies land on your pet’s eye. For instance, dust, fur, and other debris can carry harmful bacteria that infect your pet’s eyes.

Besides viruses and bacteria, the other causes of pet eye infections include:

  • Allergens
  • Fungus spores
