Hi

Firstly I am from Pakistan. I have 2 does. Recently one of the doe's eyes looks unusual. Water was pouring from eyes. And almost 5 days ago, one eye was closed and the other one looks ok. But now the other one is closed and the previous one is now open. A local vet just came. He says because of your carelessness, a whole membrane is formed over her eye and now it will take week to even a month to completely heal. He said use Betnesol -N drops every 2 to 3 hours.
Also I never heard about pink eye but a brief search on google points out that it maybe pink eye.

The current situation of eyes:
Hair Head Eye Human body Ear


Human body Jaw Working animal Ear Fawn


Liquid Light Product Water Fluid

Feeling very sorry for her. She is standing in one place and don't want to eat/drink. Don't know why she is not sitting.

I'm sorry your dealing with that. And no it's not necessarily carelessness, or anything your fault other then not knowing and not starting treatment sooner. I had a cow with Pinkett and even with immediate treatment it still took almost 2-3 weeks to fully heal. Sorry i don't know anything about that med.

I'm not sure about Betnesol. Is it an antibiotic? If not, she needs one in her eye.
Google show this. It's basically a Steroid

Betnesol-N Drops belongs to a group of medicines called topical corticosteroids ('steroids' for short). Betnesol-N Drops work by reducing inflammation (redness, itching and soreness). Topical means that they are used on the outside of the body and not taken by mouth or injection.

I am glad you got the vet to come! Well done!
You probably saved her from going blind.
They close the eye because of the pain of looking at the light.
I hope the medicine will work quickly for her.
Make sure you wash your hands well after touching her eyes. It is highly contagious, to other goats and even to himans!

It happened to my buck, and his pen is cleaned a lot.
I also left it untreated for a few days, because I had not dealt with pinkeye before and misdiagnosed it.
Don’t feel bad about it, you are doing a good job now, that’s all that counts!
