Belle's eye >> red growth thing

Swannie, did you continue to use the antibiotic after seeing the last vet?

I was glad to see this topic because my 3 year old pig, Cinnamon has been having the same eye issues for the last couple of years. He gets a little inflamed, we use the antibiotic-steroid combo for a couple of days and it goes away.

However, this last one has been the worst and started the end of March. It is bulging all the way around. I took him back to the vet on Thursday and I held him while he flushed with saline real well. Cinny was great. He gave me a new antibiotic in case he has become immune to the other.

Hope Belle is doing bettter.

P.S. The pics help tremendously!!! Thanks for those.

No, I haven't applied the AB ointment in a while (last application was 4/11 or so). And I'm happy to report her eye is now *completely* clear!

That is great! I hope you don't have a recurrance but at least you'll have an idea of what's going on.
