Goats/Bulging eye


Hi Donna, just a couple more questions about the little girl with the swelled up eye. First the eye is glazed over like an animal that is blind a greyish white, she can blink today. Antibiotics Pen-G OK? and probiotics is that to go with it?I have capsule form which i can break open and mix with a bit of banana. Thanks.

Yes, grayish/white or cream  can indicate an infection is still there, just deep in the eye.  This can also be scar tissue from the heat.  When you say she can blink, does that mean when you put a hand or fingers in front of that eye that she blinks then? If so, that is a good sign.  Yes on the pen-G.  And, yes on the probiotics.  Donna
