    My giant was fine this morning and just now she has a pink eye
    She is 6 weeks
    Should I be worried? She is eating and drinking and happy so far

    Look to see if there is any clear or cloudy drainage or any injury to the eye. Use some saline or water to wash out her eye, and apply either Terramycin Ointment, Vetericyn Eye Gel or Eye wash, or plain antibiotic ointment such as Bacitracin, Neosporin, or Polysporin twice a day into the eye. She may have been pecked, injured it, or it could be infected. If she has any other signs such as sneezing. wheezing, or gasping, she could also have a respiratory infection, such as infectious bronchitis, MG, or others.
