VERY important for this - to prevent secondary eye infections while it is healing. Soap and water unfortunately can be irritating to the eye and even possibly worsen the irritation and infection.4) There are even products such as the Virbac Remend product which has hyaluron and cross linking technology to speed healing of ulcers - for complete healing in as little as 2 days (LINK HERE)This is meant to be a running dialogue, and for this reason it is very IMPORTANT that you reply using the REPLY TO EXPERT button if more information is needed at any time BEFORE rating.Positive RATING (EXCITED FACE or 5 STARS) and bonus if happy is appreciated as this is the only way I know you have received the information and I receive credit for my time.Please remember to ONLY rate my answer when you are 100% satisfied.
