    We have a very young runner that had hurt web foot and due to the fact she could not clean her eye that it is now closed and dark. The foot is better and we have been getting her into a bath to soak it. Is there any suggestions to help kill the infection in the eye?

    How does her eyeball look? surrounding tissue I think I'd rinse out the eye with a saline wash [warm water 1cup to 1/8th teaspoon of salt mixed well] rinse out best you can then you need some Terramycin eye ointment it's for eye infections. Feed stores carry it call first to make sure. Also you can use Veterycin eye spray. If you don't noticed a change for the positive by end of weekend you might want to consult a vet.
