Eye is tearing badly…
Hi all, I just had a quick question. A couple weeks ago, my horse’s eye looked as though it had a small cut in the inner corner and it was very pink. The vet took a look at it and because it was so small in nature, he preferred that we try to let it heal naturally. I was looking great for a week or so, but has gone downhill in the last couple days. It seems as though the “pinkness” is now spreading. What seems to be the issue is that his eye is tearing terribly and is irritating everything. I am getting the vet out as soon as he can, but in the meantime, the tearing fluids are doing a number on his face – is there anything I can put on his cheek to stop the fluids from eating at the hair and flesh? I have been cleaning his face on a regular basis to try to prevent it, but it is tearing so consistently that I can’t possibly clean up every tear and it is seems to be rapidly irritating the skin.
Thank in advance for any suggestions!
