Pinkeye : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

How do you treat pinkeye? We use Maxim 200 ( give three days, off three )to prevent A secondary infection, and wash the eye with saline every day. This works but I know there are a lot of other ways out there. We are feeding 1500lbs bales this year and starting to fight pinkeye. What do all of you do? We are looking for a better way. Thanks

Salt. Put some on the palm of your hand and blow it into the animals eye. It also works well for eye infections and even helped a goat here who had actually punctured his eye with a screw. Put salt in the eye a few times and the eye got better, redness went away, and not clouded! There will always be a white mark where the eye was punctured but he can see.
