For his right (non-blinking) eye, the vet gave me some ointments to put into his eye twice a day to keep it moist.
Despite his issuses, I think he is doing really well. He is now 880G, up 120G from the last visit! I think that he will be a chubby pig in no time.
Diablo's doing well, maintaining a weight of 880G. His eye is healing well, but he's still not blinking. I will probably stop giving him the Meloxicam soon, as I don't think he's in any pain. Plus, one less thing to struggle to shove down his throat. Dr. Crum said I might need to continue with the Baytril for 3-4 weeks, probably until his head tilt is reduced.
Diablo is doing absolutely wonderful! He is maintaining weight (though he is still too skinny, in my opinion), and is very happy and healthy. He has moved in with Elsie, and they get along really well. I'm amazed that she hasn't even nipped at him once since they've lived together. Before, she has made him bleed on several occasions. It's a relief that she's being nice now, because I'm always worried about D's eye. If she nipped him near his eye, he'd be unable to close his eye to protect it, and I really doubt that he'd enjoy another corneal ulcer.
And, quick question. I've gone through almost two tubes of the AB ointment for D's eye, and this stuff is pretty expensive. I know that Brandilynn used Vaseline for Laz's eye, would it be okay for Diablo? After all, his eye is not cut, infection or injured in any way, it just needs to stay moist.
Could this potentially be an indicator of an issue, or am I just paranoid?
He doesn't have any of the heart pig symptoms listed. All of his skin is nice and pink (and his ears turn red when he's excited!), and he's much more active than any of the other pigs. He is always running around. Of course, while running, he may crash into the wall or go in a circle, but that's okay. ;)
