    Was it an injury or an infection? If it was an injury I would just treat the eye area and not use the duramycin. Limit his water access to a 5 gallon bucket with a couple tablespoons of Oxine in it for a couple days and see if it starts improving.

    If it looks like an infection, I would try the mildest dose recommended for poultry for 3 days, limiting the water of course, to only a 2 gallon bucket with the meds, and watch for improvement.

    Glad to hear he still has his eye!
