My few year old Black Jersey Giant's eye is very infected. I believe it started as an injury in the corner of his eye and has gotten worse from there. His eye has slowly swollen and crusted closed. I purchased a big bottle of Vetericyn "Pink Eye" as it had a higher dose than the gel Opti something or another for other eye infections. I wonder if the gel may have 'stuck' better then the Pink Eye stuff which is a spray. Anyways, I sprayed twice a day, sometimes three for a week and while it stopped oozing as badly, it's now completely closed and just gross. He's also becoming very impatient with me messing with him. So, what's next? I have on hand, Liquid Enrofloxyn 10% liquid and Doxycycline 20% powder. I also have a Big R farm store nearby and this weekend will have any large farm store available when I head out to shop. I would prefer not to inject anything, I'm a big baby and quite frankly I don't want to put my rooster through that as he's already been very patient with me. Do I buy the Vetericyn 'gel'? Would that even help if the Liquid spray didn't work? I spent $30 bucks on the spray and the gel is another $20. Don't want to bother buying it if it's not going to work at this point. Which makes me sad as I use to SWEAR by that stuff, but it's failed me this round. Help? Oh and my gut tells me to clean his eye out. I attempted it at the beginning when it was only 1/4 pussed/swollen closed and all I did was upset him and didn't really do a very good job of cleaning it out. An eye is such a hard place to work on. Do I need to try again to clean it or just leave it alone? Thanks in advance!
