Has anybody ever performed a home surgery to remove an infected eyeball? Just had my Chook to the vet.....could only afford to have the pus scraped out and came home with over $100 in meds. Vet thinks the infection is coming from the cornea and that the eyeball should be removed ......$700!!!!! Any ideas or suggestions for treating this bird?
What does the eye show, Give me a description ?
Picture would be helpful.
Im not saying this will work but any type of eye injury I use Neomycin Polymyxin B Sulfates / Dexamethasone ophthalmic ointment. You can buy it at First State Vet supply, online..
The Neomycin works well in the eye twice a day under the eyelid for most eye irritations..
Eye injuries are tough. You have to catch it early. I would not use anything else..
