Foamy eye?

    What have you all used to treat foamy eye? My 6-7 week old Pekin has a few bubbles in their eye. I noticed them yesterday, so I stared putting VetRx drops in a tub of water, as well as a solution of goldenseal root and water drops in the eyes. His/her eyes have been slightly droopy for a few weeks now and I was using the same products for a few days until I thought I was just being paranoid since nothing was changing. I noticed the bubbles pop up yesterday.

    Any tips? Someone suggested vitamins with electrolytes; I will likely get some of those, as well.

    I've been using Vetericyn pink eye spray, Vet RX, and Duramycin-10 treatment for my Pekin that has an eye infection. She had her whole eye covered in bubbles but now it's just a little bubbly in the corner. She's definitely getting better but you do need to treat it because it can get really bad and either can cause a respiratory infection or is signs of one.

    Thanks for your response. I think I will try to get the duramycin-10 too. They've been getting the VetRx in their tub of water and the golden seal root drops.
