Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

It depends on what the infection is....if there is not a corneal ulcer, then you would be using an antibiotic creme into the eye and possibly a steroid creme. If you still have this creme, continue this and apply a warm compress to the eye every 4-6 hrs to help draw the infection to the outside. It will also help to give Majix aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs to decrease pain along with the eye treatments.

If this is Glaucoma, then your vet will need to recheck pressures to know if the treatment is working but you said it was an eye infection and this should be easy to resolve. Sometimes, with treatments, the eye can look worse before it gets better.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.

Sincerely, ***** *****
