This is Clyde, his eye is infected, the vet didn't now anything about peafowl but he did look at Clyde and attempt to get the ball of infection out although it is completely surrounding the eye, the eye is visible in the center of the mass. The vet picked out some of the infection but decided to stop because he felt he would need to put Clyde to sleep to completely get it out because of the fact it was surrounding the eye and to much was attached to the mass so he put some baytril (0.6 ml) in five syringes and a tube of entederm ointment for him, and instructions to give baytril oral for five days and use the ointment after washing eye with ivory soap and water and rinse daily, ITS BEEN 3 DAYS AND IT LOOKS WORSE! well the first and second day when cleaning the eye I could get just a tiny bit of stuff out now the third day it is dried over with scab, I washed today but no goo or anything, I attempted to press a little more to get it off but he seemed to be really hurting so with out any help I just stopped. I rinsed and applied the ointment I will attempt tomorrow morning again, maybe the ointment will soften the scab. If I didn't work full time with over time and could have Im thinking washing twice daily and applying the ointment would be more effective. It cost 75.00 so far and I was afraid to ask how much it would be to put him to sleep. I have seen pics of the masses removed by ppl and Im sure with an extra person I could do it but the vet said it wouldn't work cause of the eye is in the center of it all. HAS ANYONE HAD THIS WITH THE EYE SURROUNDED WITH THE MASS AND WHAT DID YOU DO?. I DONT HAVE THE FUNDS IM AFRAID FOR SURGERY AT THE VETS.
