Last week one of our goat kids had an injured eye. It was swollen and red with a white lesion over the middle of the pupil. We treated it with antibiotic/steroid drops. His eye did not get better, and by Sunday the pupil was small with white discoloration above and below in it. So Tom took him to the vet Monday, and he was felt to have a puncture would that was healing superficially but infected deeper. So in addition to antibiotic ointment he is on injected antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications. His right eye is already looking a lot better (above).
Our red golden pheasant rooster has been blind in one eye from an injury a while ago. Recently he became blind in the other eye. He was doing OK in a pen with another rooster, but yesterday I found him beat up by the other rooster. A chicken had come into the pen and maybe this triggered some aggression. Anyway now he is in a cage hopefully healing.
It seems like we have had a lot of veterinary ophthalmology lately. In addition to the above, we have had the llama eye tumor and the infected globe of Oogie. In the past I have had a blind dog from glaucoma, a half blind ram from an injury, and an injured eye from a blackberry vine and my neglect in the Story of Spike. I think I need to study the topic now.
