Chamomille is a very good cleanser. You need an infusion. You place boiling water over the chamomille and then cover the cup. Let it steep for 20/25 minutes. The result will be a tad bit yellower than the usual tea.

It is great for irritated skin, cleaning the eyes and tender areas (such as after a rash). I use it all the time and it is wonderful. Make sure you use pure chamomille, nothing added.

Kishes to sweet Panqueca :)

Light will bother, similar to when we have an eye infection and can't bear the sun or light, it will be irritating to her but she'll be OK. If you think she's in pain, give her a drop of metacam to ease it (also an anti inflammatory).

Hoping to see an improvement in the next few days!

Great pics! Seems like the injured eye may be a tiny bit receded - much better than "protruded". I think eyes sometimes recede as a protective measure. Protrusion can indicate infection or teeth elongation.

Just for record: photo taken this afternoon.

Looks like yesterday, but seems a bit more reddish around the iris; the cloudiness seems more concentrated in the center.

Regaine, that's almost exactly how Rodney's eye looked when he had a hay poke. He had a little dot where the hay had poked him that was darker in color, though. I wonder if maybe she got some hay dust or something in her eye? Anyway, I just wanted to reassure you that it will get better. It took Rodney's eye about a week before it started looking normal again. You caught it right away, which is key for eye care!

Thanks Bugs Mom, tia2370, Debs4Pigs and daisymay for your kindness messages!

tia2370, thank you for share your experience, it helps a LOT. So glad Rodney's eye got back to normal! It covered me with hope.

I got up early to take care of Panqueca's eye, and it really looks a bit better each time. I know it's just a *bit* and it takes time, but the feeling is *relief*.

I'll take another picture in the afternoon.

Excellent images, Regiane! So wonderful to see marked improvement!

I forget if I asked if you'd like me to add them all to the board (I should give you a special folder ;-)

IS your camera really good?

What amazing pictures, and how cool! That we can compare the eye each day, without have to scroll back I love modern technology!

Just wanted to send healing wheeks your way, the eye does look like it's getting, well it does to me from the pictures you have provided!

What an ace Mummy, you are :)! I found this thread very educational so far Thank You.

Yes, I love your pictures. What kind of camera do you have.

A little bit better every day is all it takes.

Thank you! Panqueca helps me, she's being a good girl when I'm caring of her. Looks like she knows "Mom is taking care of me, so I'll get well.
I know probably she thinks "After this I'll get yumyums", but the important thing is that she is brave and let me apply the ointment in her eye. :)


I'll try to take photos day by day, so we can see the healing process - I can't wait to see her eye finally healed!

Lynx, sure you can add the pics. Hope it helps if someone pass through something like this. I know how it scares.

Fred_and_co and Debs4Pigs, I have a Samsung L210. It's not professional, but I really like this camera. I use the macro function for taking pictures up close, so I can get sharp images.

Lots of pics on this thread! I made a folder just for your photos (if I remember I'll put future ones here).

Example:
gl/photos/regiane/23.jpg

One of the advantages of hosting them here is they load quite quickly. You do such a wonderful job on the photos!
