I checked on my silkie this morning and her eye seemed watery and swollen. I checked and there was a strand of a feather in her eye and a lot of clear fluid. I pressed on the swollen area gently and it seemed to be soft and full of the fluid. At first I suspected sinuses but it seemed as though she may of had something irratatig her eye. After removing the feather, I gently pressed some of the fluid from her eye and let her back out. A few hours later I return and it is a LOT worse!!! I am scared for her life and She has been very important to me I cannot lose her!

After a Few hours Later

She is a 6m/o blue splash that we rescued and she means the world to me please help me.

Does she have any sneezing, nasal drainage, gasping, or other breathing problems? Eye swelling can be a sign of respiratory diseases such as MG or coryza, but a forein body or a pecked eye can also become infected. I would probably go ahead and start her on some Tylan 50 injectable, given orally, 1/4 ml twice a day for 5 days, in case of a sinus infection. An alternative medicine would be oxytetracycline in her water if she is drinking well enough. Terramycin eye ointment can be applied to her eye twice a day, after cleaning any drainage.
