My mare has a corneal abrasion in her left eye. She is getting banamine 2x daily (for 2 days), and supposed to be getting antibiotic eye ointment 4-5 times daily (as many times as I can get out there), and atopine ointment 2x daily.
Any suggestions on getting the medication in her eye? She closes her eye so tightly I'm having a hard time even getting the meds in. Does it matter if you only give 2 doses of Banamine- the last time I did this (different vet) we gave 4 doses of banamine?
At least I caught it right away.
When do they usually use steroids? Or is that just for uveitis? The vet said he didn't want to use steroids? Is that because steroids increase the risk of infection? I guess I should have asked, but I didn't think about it til later.
