    The first picture is her good eye. She is eating and drinking fine. I do not know what caused her eye to swell, no visable bite, has been swollen for three days. I've been putting neomyasin ointment in her eye and holding a warm wet cloth on her a couple of times a day. I have VetRX and been putting a drop in her water. I have Sulmet Antibacterial solution in her water. All three things I have tried has not helped at all. I am needing an antibiotic but don't know what to get. Please if anyone can help with this please let me know.

    Hello and thank you for your reply. There is nothing in her eye, just swollen around the eye. So worried about her, just hoping someone can help me with this.
