We have a TWH that has had 3 episodes of a swollen eye. The first time it was swollen shut. We flushed it out and it was better the next day. The second episode same eye, same treatment and it was better the next day. This time it is the other eye that is swollen and this eye is cloudy. The only thing we origionally thought was that he was getting hay in it when he and the other horses were eating at the big round bale of hay. I am worried about the cloudy part. Why would it be cloudy? Anyone out there have any experience with eye problems?
He's probably either got allergies or getting something in it. Cloudy usually means there is a scratch. I'd call the vet. If you have any banamine I'd give him a dose of that while I was waiting for the vet.
They'll probably put this dye stuff in it so that can see whatever damage there is, if any and then they'll give you a treatment plan, which is usually 2 or three different ointments.
