Z had viral conjunctivitis. This means that her left eye got a little pink but she didn't need to take eye drops. (For bacterial conjunctivitis, which I had last year, you need drops.) Anyway, her eyes look good now, and she seems more enthused about camp again. "Do I go to Puppy Group today?" she asked, and seemed pleased when I told her she would go on Monday. So maybe she was just down on camp because she was sick.

How do they tell which is which? Are both contagious?

I think they're both contagious, but bacterial is more severe; they treat it with eyedrops. The viral kind, they just let it blow over. The eye looks worse (crusty, leaking) when it's bacterial. When it's viral, it's just a little red.
