May not be able to have an in person appointment but maybe a phone consult with your vets. They have a drastic measure now that involves a steroid injection in the back of the eye. The success rate in pretty outstanding . I also started into some interesting alternative treatments in support of the conventional and my present horse has been free of flares and I'm reducing his eye ointments.
My original vet was trying to help but actually making things worse! PM me if you want their contact info (not comfortable publicly posting their numbers without permission).
I have a 6yo Paint and he has uveitis in his right eye. He had a flare up today and he's obviously in pain. I buted him and gave him a calming supplement to calm him down but I know I need to do more to save his vision. I absolutely do not want him to go blind in that eye and I do not want it to spread into the other eye. I also do not feel comfortable asking for help from the vet because they don't always know the best way to help. So, I saw your post and wanted to know what to do/who to call. What is the best way, in your experience, to treat this now before it gets worse?
Please please help. I've put so much time, love, and effort into this horse. I've already saved his life once... He really doesn't need to go through any more pain. He's also very talented and has quite the career ahead of him...
Let me know what to do.
