Seriously. I think i'm going to change vets now, i'm over it.
She's on Atropine Sulfate Ophthalmic solution USP, and Neomycin (as needed) and Polymyxin B Sulfates and Bacitracin Zinc Ophthalmic ointment USP (3X day)
She's getting harder and harder to handle anymore. I can usually get the ointment in no problem, but the drops is another story....
I need to get more ointment too.
Wow!! Your situation sounds a LOT like mine. My horse injured his eye on a trail ride with a thorn, had the vet out who was VERY big into waiting to see what would happen. As it progressed I got another vet who started to be a lot more proactive (catheter in the eye to treat the ulcer every couple of hours) but we still lost the eye in the end.
My horse started to get terrible with the treatment too, and he's normally a pretty calm guy. What helped us what eventually just twitching him every time I needed to give him medicine, made it less stressful for the both of us and then I knew he was getting all of the medicine in every time.
Best of luck to you and your horse!
