    my barred rock hen was fighting eye worm , so i bought vetrx to treat it an
    I've been applying it for about two or three days now , today I checked in on
    her and it was great but not heal. I've put socks on her feet because she scratches
    it a lot and makes it worse , the socks where the best to do as choice

    [​IMG] glad to have you join us, but sorry about the eye worm issue.

    Hope the treatment works. The no scratch socks is genius [​IMG]

    If you are unsure about the diagnosis or the treatment fails, then pleas post close up pics under emergencies.

    Hope she recovers with her vision intact.
