Ok so on Jan. 5, my SIL filly managed to injure her eye. Gouging out a chunk about 3/4 of an inch, by 1/4 of an inch. So the next day I noticed it was horribly matted and goopy, and would not open it. It was awful, and I had no idea what to think. So we caught her and called the vet on Jan. 7. It turned out it turned into an ulcer, but it was already in the healing process. So we sedated her, and 'dyed' her eye to see if the eyeball itself was protruding (thankfully it wasn't). And we were given ointment, drops, and banamine paste. I did everything the vet ordered, and kept her in the barn the whole time as well. Here eye still has the blue haze in it, but I think the ulcer itself is gone. But i'm not too sure, since i've never had any experience with something like this. The vet needs to come back down and check her eye, but they seem to keep making excuses to come and check on them. I'm almost at a loss on what to do anymore. If anyone has had any experience with something like this, about how long did it take for it to heal?
Snowy is 2yo, Paso Fino filly, has been in the barn for 11 days now, receiving daily treatments.
Here is her eye on day 2
Here is the only pic I could get, she won't let me get anymore pics of her eye. But you can still see the blue haze in her eye, this is day 11. (she's on the left, dark green halter)
Thank you for your advice, and help!
