    A picture of the eye might help. Is the pupil (the dark part) round or irregular in shape? How long has this been going on? Here is a link to eye diseases: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps031

    Some of the antibiotics for treating respiratory disease are Tylan, tetracycline (Duramycin-10), oxytetracycline (Terramycin), Denagard, erythromycin (gallimycin), and there are others.

    You can treat for 7-14 days with tetracycline. On the label it gives directions for mixing a 400 mg dose and at 800 mg dose--just use your judgement on how strong to mix it.
