Welcome to Just Answer! I would like to help you and your Yorkie-Pooh, but need a bit more information in order to better assist you both.
What is the name of the eye drop you are using?
Is your boy holding his eye open or partly closed?
Is the eye cloudy or clear?
When did you start treatment? And when are you scheduled to have his eye re-checked by his vet?
Thanks Mary Ann for that additional information!
What you are describing with your dog is a corneal ulcer.
A corneal ulcer can be caused by a scratch on the eye - either in a fight with a cat, or on a twig, or on a sharp object in the home. Yorkie's and Poodles both have very prominent eyes, so they are prone to them. Corneal ulcers are serious and need prompt treatment. Also, they are very painful. Just think how uncomfortable your eye is with an eyelash in it, and then imagine what it would be like with a cut on it!
When I have an animal with this problem come into the clinic, I do a full ophthalmologic exam. I might put local anesthetic in the eye to make it painfree so I could open it to examine it closely. After an initial look, I would stain the eye with fluorescein dye which sticks to any parts of the eye that are damaged. This dye glows under a black light. Thus, you can easily see where the damage is.
If there was indeed a corneal ulcer, I would start the animal on antibiotic drops or ointment. Your vet has put your dog on Ciloxan antibiotic drops which are very effective.
If there was a lot of inflammation (uveitis) I would also start an ointment to dilate the pupil. I might also suggest the patient wore a cone on his head until the eye is healed so he could do no further damage (definitely he will think this is adding insult to injury!). I would have my patient come back in a few days to a week (depending on how deep the ulcer was) to check that things had healed up properly.
I will include a link with more information:
With what you are describing with the eye starting to clear up, and with you giving the eye drops as directed, there is every reason to believe that this will heal up without any problems. Your vet will examine this eye again on Monday to make sure that this is the case. In the unlikely even that it is not improving, your vet may add in a second antibiotic. I have been a vet for 14 years and in only one case have I had a patient lose an eye from a corneal ulcer - and that was because the owner waited a month to bring the patient in.
Good luck with him!
