My neighbor's cows have pinkeye and while I am working hard at fly control over here I am worried that it might spread to my goats. Just in case does anyone know a goof treatment for pinkeye?

Your goats should be safe

I goats have yet to get pink eye from the cows, they do share the same field, and ohhh boy do we have it in the cows.
If you ever do end up getting it in your herd, the sun pays a big part of messing they eye up while having it. With cattle since they way 100s of lbs we can not get them in daily to dr they eye, we glue a patch all the way around the eye. I purchased a doe with pink eye, and since she is small enough to man handle lol I just glued a patch above her eye, that way I could still dr it and keep the sun off.
