Re: Healing & Cushings
Kelly, I feel for you. Indy has had a couple of corneal ulcers this year. Both healed with a similar treatment plan as your vet’s, one had a rub with a swab, one not. I was very worried about protecting the eye from her rubbing it again while it was healing, so I bought a mask with a rubber cup to cover the eye. It’s worn with a breakaway halter. This has been a godsend for my mental health as I’m not constantly worrying that she might be rubbing another hole in her eye.
On the advice of the vet I did not decrease the banamine until her eye was comfortable, as no other form of pain relief/anti-inflammatory had any effect on the ulcer pain.
