Sent her to a friends to be bred in October and we picked her up in January . No one had a date so we have been waiting forever it seems. But she finally had twins on June 11th; a doe and a buck ; unfortunately we lost the doe. The buck had very weak legs so gave him 1cc of Bo-Se and today he is walking around great. Just had a question about his eyes ...it seems he is having a hard time opening them..what could be causing that?

He's a pretty boy for sure, congrats & sorry about the doeling.
You can put human eye drops in his eyes for a few days. If they are matted or runny follow it up with a few drops Pen G or Biomycin right in the eye, without needles of course. Do this until they are clear and continue for another day or two.

One thing that cleared it up like no other, I have a boer doeling that had a gooey, runny crusty eye for about a week (2 days after she was born it was like that), it got cloudy, grey and pink over the eyeball, She couldn't see at all out of it. I was waiting for my ointment to get here, had no LA-200. But what I did have was Tylan 200. I squirt about 3/4 of a cc in her eye, and about 1 cc in her mouth. It was expired and I had a HUGE bottle still left. Her eye was bright and clear by the next morning!
