    My rooster has a swollen eyelid [​IMG]

    I have Vetropolycin (bacitracin-neomycin-ploymixin) on hand that I use when the horses get goopy eyes. Has anyone any advice on whether I can use it on my roo? Couldn't find much on Google and I'm worried about the "cat + aspirin = liver failure" type of issue.

    He's a very friendly roo (love him!) so won't have a problem administering it....[​IMG]

    Thanks in advance!

    I have not used this on chickens, but vet told us we could use it on a baby duck. Its eyes were fine after a few days.
