Checked on our goats today and saw that it is cloudy. Suggestions on what to do from here?
you can see a picture here
It could be pink eye, which is contageous. I did a quick search here on the site and found the following recommended treatment: First wash the eye area with warm water...then flush with tylan 200 or LA 200 just draw about 1 cc per eye..remove needle and flush each eye that is infected, 2 x a day until clear...it is important to keep the eye are clean...If this is left untreated the eye will get an ulcer ( a red lump ) this can cause permanent damage and blindness..
You should be able to get the antibiotic at Tractor Supply or your local feed store.
We had a run of pink eye this summer
For the worst ones we gave an injection of LA 200 and flushed the eye with LA 200
We gave the injection daily for 3 days and then every other day a couple more times
Flushed twice a day
It does burn in the eye but it works
Keep an eye on your others
If you see them start to squint and eye watering flush the eye
It could be pink eye, which, as previously stated is contagious to both humans and other goats. Or it could be a small injury, which seems pretty common in goats. With my goats I use teramyacin when I see an injury to prevent infection, but it can also treat an infection. I've not had pink eye in my goats, but it also works for pink eye, humans and animals.
Treat for pinkeye in case.
