    I noticed a couple days ago that my doe was closing her eye. I thought maybe she had poked it with hay or something. I put some polysporin drops in the eye and she is holding it more open now but I see it is red and a little cloudy. Could this be pink eye? What should I treat her with besides the polysporin?

    Could be pink eye or infection caused by injury. Is the red area raised like a bump? I would keep with the polysporin...keep the area clean and dry as possible and her out of the sun. wear gloves in case it is pink eye...you dont want to catch it ; )

    Happy to report that my doe's eye is healing nicely. I flushed it with a saline solution and then put Polysporin Pink Eye drops in it for several days. Thanks for the help.
