Yesterday the vet diagnosed my mare with a corneal ulcer with a fungal infection in it. I'm putting two types of medicine (sorry, can't remember what ones. One is for corneal edema) and monistat on 4 times a day. The vet said if the monistat does not clear the infection up I can buy an expensive cream from him that should work. I was able to get 3 treatments in yesterday after the vet came and I have already done one today. I think I can see some improvement (the eye isn't running as much and I think is slightly less cloudy). The vet seemed very optimistic, but of course I'm being the worried mother. Does anyone know anything about corneal ulcers with fungal infections? Do they usually clear up quickly with treatment? What are the chances she'll go blind? I understand you can't give exact answers without seeing her, but I was just hoping to hear about other experiences. Thanks!
