Dr. Robinson said that it was chlamydophila psittaci a folicle forming conjuctivitis. Contagious to humans. After removing the growth, she looked around and saw hundreds more forming. Poor baby! It would also spread to the other side, not to mention spread to Mottley and US!
So they put her under and snipped it off. Found hundreds more under the eyelids. Gave her a cream to put under her lids.
This is Candy drunk as a skunk after getting home.
And her eye
And her much more alert and happy chowing down.
It has been a couple of months and it hasn't returned and Mottley is safe as well.
Looks like doxycycline is effective. What kind of eye cream were you given?
How was the diagnosis made? Did they culture the growth?
Let me know if I can copy your eye pic to the site.
I'm not 100% clear on what exactly happened. I had to work and my husband took her for me. Dr. Robinson is an hour away. I believe she just recognized the formations under the lid from her books. The eye cream took care of it, but we had an antibioitc prescription on hold at the pharmacy just in case.
