    It might help. You should give the shot wherever the instuctions tell you too-- either in the muscle or under the skin. Certainly not in his poor eye!!

    If it's an infection that's not related to a chronic respiratory disease, such as a scratch that got infected or a piece of debris in the eye...I recommend you flush the eye with saline solution and treat with terramycin eye ointment.
