Need Silkie help please???? Betsy has had an eye infection on and off, I understand this is a common silkie problem. I treat w/antibotics in her water and that usually clears it up. However this time after going off the antibotics it has come back worse to the point she wiped 'snotty stuff" all over her back. So yesterday she got a gentle bath to remove all infection and back on antibotics. Last night she was all fluffy and happy. This morning her eye is is completely shut and not stuck shut w/any discharge but apparently was "goopy" because her back is icky again. Besides antibotics and electroyltes -- what do I do for that eye? Right now nothing to wipe off and I'm not sure a warm compress would be good or bad?? Oh -- any irritating hair/feathers are kept trimmed. Update: Kept searching the boards and hv tried some things.... I did find yellow stuff way deep inside the corner of her eye. Was able to wash (w/saline solution) most of it. Not sure it's supposed to be there and there is a tiny piece left that wouldn't remove without really hurting her. It was soft, not object like. She opened her eye immediately after that tho. I washed several times with saline and then a liittle neosporin over the general area (eye shut of course). She's eating and walking around a little. Not her typically self but better and her eye is open for now. I don't like the idea of always keeping her on antibotic water but it seems we hv the problem when I take her off. Any other silkie moms out there with ideas? Thanks! j.
