poor django has a horrible eye infection. there's a puffy ring about 1/8" around his eye, on the eyelid that's puffy and red. it looks like someone drew a big circle around his eye.
he's on eye drops that are antibiotics and an oral, simplicef. the pills are killing his system. he's constipated for 2 days, won't eat. i talked to the vet and he suggested taking him off it for 2 days and then putting him back on it, the pills make most dogs queezy. i also give him pepcid every day. won't go near yogurt.
this antibiotic was just approved for skin infections so hopefully it will clear up his eye but in the meantime, poor guy is out of wack!
i think the eye infection started with crusties that formed on the outer lid that over time got yeasty and infected. i am always cleaning his eyes on a daily basis, sometimes 3x a day. does anyone out there use any kind of eye wipe? i bought some but they said to keep the wipes away from the eye. i use a soft wet cloth to soften the crusties but would love something that's disposable.
