It is definitely infected. Something for sure caused an infection and no antibiotics or nothing were given. Im pretty angry.. If I was around when the vet was around I would have given her a piece of my mind. Posted via Mobile Device
I have one mare that will every summer go through this. Typically it starts off with the gnats and noseeums creating irritation. She starts rubbing, eventually she either rubs hard enough or out of frustration from the itch slams her head into usually a tree and we have the same end result. I have an antibiotic ointment to put in it along with cool water compresses and washing around the eye plus applying (BY HAND) a bug deterrent around that area and it clears up in 24 -48 hours. She won't keep a mask on. That said I had a horse with the same that turned out to be cancer so I'd say try the cool compresses and washing plus a bug spray applied by hand or wipe. It may take more than just day or two but before I had the cream it would work. It it doesn't even look like there is a sign of clearing by 48hrs have another vet look at it.
Yellow leakage is puss, she needs something for the infection and you need to figure where this started. I could have been a minor puncture wound but could become serious because of an incompetent vet. I feel so sad for the horse and yourself, what a moron of a vet. Not all vets are created equal that's for sure.
I looked for a puncture wound and did not see one. It started back when his eye was red and irritated (I told her to get the vet to come check it.. Not like that would have done anything anyways.. She never did) and it has escalated to this. Posted via Mobile Device
