My horse's eye swelled up but soon after it cleared up completely... But it has been weeping ever since and got slightly worse yesterday, it really seemed to be getting him down. I called the vet and she gave me some eye drops for him. She said that he has no infection as such just the flies are irritating his eyes and they are all gewy! Poor baby.
So I have been bathing his eyes with sponges and that can be difficult with a head-shy horse!
I have given him eye drops for today, it went ok although it took a while for me to get his head... and them get him to open his eye :/ but it is done now :)
From tomorrow I will be washing his eyes with 'eye and nose' lotion this breaks up the discharge and makes them feel all fresh; putting eye drops in and bathing his eyes still.
Pictures- Hay fever and a scar from back then... (I realise it is probably not hay fever now)
Well I think that will cure him of his head-shyness!
