|Comment||Donna, thank you very much for your advice. It was 100% iodine. We gave the goat vitamin and Tylenol, this reduced anxiety. Kept washing her eye. She showed interest in hay and water the next day. By the end of the 2nd day she behaved normal and went to pasture with pleasure, the only thing was that she kept her eye closed, and it kept being teary. We have called the vet on the 3rd day, he tested the eye, and, yes, the eye was damaged, lower part of cornia. He gave us anti-inflammation eye substance. After few days of application of the medication she is opening her eye, and it looks like she did not loose her vision as she does not show any signs of discomfort when I am approaching her on the damaged eye side. But the cloudy spot on the eye is clearer, not as dense as it was, but is not going away. I am wondering if what happened could somehow impact her kid as it looks like she is a week away from delivery.|
