    I have a month and a half mille fleur and noticed his eye was a little funny, on closer inspection his eye had aclear substance covering it and he had his eye closed a lot. What can i do to help him get better?[​IMG]

    His eye looks slightly swollen. Apply some neosporin or triplebiotic ointment to his eye. Watch him for other signs of respiratory disease--sneeze, swollen face and eyes, bubbles or drainage in eyes, and nasal drainage. Mycoplasma, infectious bronchitis are some common diseases. Duramycin10 or terramycin in the water would be good for treatment. Also Tylan 50 injections. Click here for info: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
