Also, just have to say that in rabbits there are what we "affectionately" refer to as "EC lesions" in the eye--which are caused when the protozoal infection, E. Cuniculi, attacks the eye tissue itself. I know pigs can get infected with EC, but do not know of any documented and confirmed cases of symptomatic pigs.
I mention it because a course of one of the 'bendazoles (Fenbendazole, Oxibendazole, Albendazole) can often clear up eye lesions caused by EC and the animals sometimes even regain all or most of the vision in the affected eye.

He took blood and the good news is no diabites. So that is a good thing. He said she weighs 3 lbs and other than her eyes she seems helathy. Dr Rambo also said that being cataracts she could sometime have pain. If she does he will give her some eye drops. The only other option is to have the cataract removed by a specialist. But he said that would run about $2000 and he didn't think I should put her trough that.
She was very good at the vets, the ladies all loved her. One even gave her a bath and trimmed her nails. She had to be given gas before the blood test as she did not want to hold still. But she is home, munching on hay and glad to be put back with the other girls.
Poor Shiloe, I feel so bad for her. The Dr did not think it was genetic and was surprised Shiloe got this at an early age. But she seems fine for now.
Anyone have any thoughts on this? Oh and also I notice some brown specks in her fur after the bath and they put them under the microscope and the Dr looked and said it was Dandruff and not any sort of mites or bug matter.
What do you do about Dandruff?

Good luck with her. I hope she does not ever experience pain or anything more severe from it.
