If there are no Ulcers ( red bump in eye) then you can treat with LA 200/tylan 200 or penicilin as an eye drop...keep their face clean and dry as much as possible and out of sun light....If there is an ulcer, use a triple antibiotic cream such as neospordin..
here is a article to give more ideas : )

Thsi could be the start of Polio..I would start her on Thiamine or fortified B complex right away..Polio will cause staggering, like a drunk.. star gazing and blindness..

Probably just because she's having a hard time seeing. If the eye is not ulcerated, use Tylan200, or LA200, or something comparable, draw up 1cc per eye and take the needle off. Take your time and try to get as much of the cc as you can in each eye (it will run out a lot though). It should clear up quickly, normally only takes one treatment for my goats, it should clear up within a day or two. You can do it once or twice a day. I only do it once all together because their eye's are normally clear by the next morning.

Sounds like she is just compsating for her eye issue then...LA 200 can be at tractor supply...you can alo get tylan 200...you really only need a drop in each effective eye..and even if it looks clear the next day I would do this at least 3-5 days to be sure the infection is gone..keep the face and eye area as dry as you can..
a daily fortified B complex shot wouldnt hurt while they get through this..its a great spplort vitamin for times of stress

A good OTC cocci treatment if Dimethox, again should be able toget it at Tractor supply but most farm supply stores should carry it...Sulmet is another...1 ccper 5# day one then 1 ccper 10# day two oraly, straight out of the bottle
another treatment I prefer, but needs to be ordered is Baycox...its a one time treatment, 2 if you have an issue 1 cc per 5# once orally..works great, I order from horseprerace.com

for reg. wormer I would choose one that cover a large base..Ivomec plus and Vabazen are what we use, both will kill liver fluke where other wormers willnot....valbazen is great for kids and new moms, bucks..any one who is not pregnant..1 cc per 10# orally..Ivomec Plus is 1 cc per 40# sub Q..other use it orally at 1cc per 30#. Never use it orally in heavey loaded goats..do injected first then repeat in 10 days orally if you choose.. I do not use Ivomec product on kids under 6 month of age.
Ivomec plus can be found at TSC and sometimes Valabzen can, but I get Valabazen from my local farm supply store

The reason I say choose a broad wormer is you should use one wormer type (reg. wormer and a white wormer) Until it no longer works...my as well choose a wormer with the most bang for your buck..;)
