    The vet never called me back. I bought a flush and cream for him, and just in a day it's doing so much better from it! I still want the vet to come and check on it, but they haven't called me back from yesterday. I've only ever had one other problem with them in 20 years, so maybe they didn't get the call for some reason....I don't know. The eye is completely open now, and there's no new seapage coming out of it.

    Since I have a boarding facility and have had issues with eyes and know that if there is a problem it needs emergency attention... I keep dye strips so I can test for ulcers and I have the ointments on hand if necessary. If you have trouble getting a hold of your vet these are probably things you should have on hand and have your vet show you how to use the dye strips and what to look for.

    It amazes me that this op ignores this post but goes on like nothing happened and is posting on other threads while her horse suffers. I can only imagine the pain this horse is in. So Sad. It had even crossed my mind to offer to pay for the vet but I didn't want to ambarrass her when it came to me that they possibly couldn't afford the vet.

    Churumbeque maybe the OP is ignoring this post because she doesn't need to hear your criticism. Animal cruelty indeed. A little harsh maybe? Back off.

    The OP did buy first aid products and after a day there is marked improvement. Rather than assume she is not spending enough time calling a vet, I see that she is spending time looking after her horse and will continue to do so.

    Personally, if this was my thread, I would not be replying either. It is for this reason that I rarely, very rarely ever ask for input about a physical problem with my horses here. I currently have something I would like some other views on but I haven't posted because I don't need to hear the same old routine: call the vet, call the trimmer, you're abusing your horse, if you can't afford it you shouldn't own a horse, blah, blah, blah

    Starlinestables gave some great input and advice for going forward.

    I hope all continues to be well with the OP's horse.

    I'm not ignoring this thread, I'm not posting because I don't have anything to say. Sorry about that. However, his eye is almost completely better--when I was using the flush on Friday, a very small piece of hay came out. I think that was what was bothering it. His eye is definitely recovering. Thanks for your input....and please refrain from the animal cruelty crap. It doesn't help help his eye. Thanks

    My concern is the care of the horse and to be treated by a professional. I don't think I am harsh just trying to get to the point and feel passionate about animals that are hurt. Eye injuries are serious and hard to know what is wrong with out a proper exam.
    If you are afraid to post because you don't like what you hear maybe you need to take a different view point and look at what you are doing or not doing.
