Been having issues with his eyes running and staying matted shut; fixed them with 2 cc of pennicilum; cleared them right up but now seems like his left third eyelid is stuck. What can I do?

Did you give him a shot of Penicillin? I would clean his eye and put eye antibiotic ointment in his eye 2-4 times per day.

I put penicillin in his eyes and it cleared his eyes up within a few hours. Just his left eye is pink and I was told it was his third eyelid .

I agree with Karen..even if it looks better it might need a full 3-5 days treatment to keep it clear..

:eek: Oh he is so cute! Sorry, but I am such a sucker for paints! Pretty nice guy for two weeks old. And I am glad to see that he is doing well.

This happened to my doeling, Patti, she got some birthing fluid in her eyes and the birthing fluid had waste in it. Eyelids swelled and gooped shut. My mom and I went out twice daily and wiped it off with wet ones and baby soap. She cleared up just fine. :) Glad to hear he's doing better!
