Hello! I have an 11 week old baby goat with a corneal ulcer to her right eye. The vet sold me a tube of Terramycin ointment. Do I just rub it into her eye? I'm a little confused on application, and new to animal ointments.

Yes, put about 1/16-1/4 inch on your finger, put in lower lid, open & shut lids.
Anytime I do anything with eyes I put human eye drops in first.
And guard that ointment with your life, it's rare to find it even OTC anymore.

Yes do like Nancy said, never use the tube itself to dispense medication into a critters eye, too much risk of poking them with it. ALso, opportunistic fungal infections love eye injuries, you can use regular yeast infection Monistat cream and dose the eye 1-2 times a day with that.
