Hi this is DRB and I would be happy to assist you with this......it is true that it takes quite a while to get rid of certain bacteria and fungi....but if your dog looks no better than I would seek a second opinion. I know you are indicating that you are seeing an ophthalmologist but I would recommend seeing if we can get you into a college of veterinary medicine where there will be a team of specialists that can help your dog. Please tell me where you live and I will help you find someone that can help you. Let me know your city or the largest city you are near. I will find someone for you. Sincerely, DRB

Are you seeing a board certified veterinary ophthalmologist? Please let me know because if not we need to fine you one.

How far is Glendale from Davis California where UC Davis is located? There is a college of veterinary medicine there and I feel your dog would be better off there......let me know and I will get back to you tonight. Sincerely, DRB
