    Try putting some ACV into his bucket he uses to dunk his head for washing. I know Tylan is safe to use but I've never had to use it, I'd try the Apple Cider Vinegar first it has anti Bacterial proprieties and if he has injured his eye may help. are you noticing other symptoms too? AND [​IMG]


    there is also Terramycin eye salve that most feed stores carry, but a vet visit is a great decision especially if there are other symptoms.
