Can you get pink eye from an animal?


Answer by  raun08 (1839)

Yes, it is possible to transmit many forms of conjunctivitus from person to animal and visa versa. The only way to know for sure is to see a physician.

Traditionally pink eye can be caused by any irritant, virus, or bacteria introduced to the eye. If an animal has an eye infection it is possible a person could also get an infection if infected material is transferred to the human's eye. The most common cause of pink eye is not washing your hands after touching a variety of substances.
