No, there is no home or over the counter remedy for conjunctivitis (pink eye). No boric acid please! The vet needs to give you Terramycin ointment. It works great and fast!

Until you go to the vet (which I hope you do) you can use warm washcloth to gently rub the ick off the eyes. You need to do it every time they wake up because the eye will get matted. Gently pry the eye open after using the washcloth (or whatever you use) and wipe off any puss that come out. Be sure the eye stays open because the infection and puss will eat the eyeball behind a sealed eye. Sorry to be graphic, but that is what happens.

But the best advice would be to take her to the vet ASAP. Good luck and hope your fur baby gets well soon!
