My sweet silkie has a swollen eye. I have tried to get the hard puss out but there doesn't seem to be any. No worms. I've put vetrx in the water and was suggested to put a drop in his eye every other day or 2. I've done that but no progress. I'm at a loss. Any ideas?

Can you please post some pictures of her eye?

A photo would help is evaluate how extensive this issue is. If it's a localized infection, terramycin or Neosporin eye ointment may be necessary to fight it. If the infection is from Mycoplasma, an oral antibiotic may be required.

Can you also tell us how you've been attempting to express the pus from the eye?
