Shiloh (one of my 2 year olds) has had a rough summer. I'm sure because of her itchy allergys she has been rubbing her head on just about everything. I noticed late last night she had one eye that was so swollen and full of pus you could hardly see the eyeball :( I felt the horsey angels were on my side this morning (Saturday) a busy vet day. I called them and my main vet said he could send his dad out this morning . He's in his 80's but knows more about horses then I will ever know. Anyhoo she wouldn't sedate well so we twitched her so he could get a good look at the eye. I couldn't believe he stuck his (latex gloved) finger into her eye socket to check the outer and inner lid, it was pretty interesting. We finally got it flushed out and he thought it looked like she has a small scratch on the cornea. She got her medi and that was that
Wanted to say a good God bless to all vets out there, what would we do without you. Hopefully she will be all better in a few days.
