I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. A cloudy and blue eye indicates corneal inflammation due to injury (abrasion, ulcer) or to intraocular disorders such as glaucoma (increased intraocular pressure) or uveitis (inflammation of the iris and its attachments). This can't be addressed with penicillin but will need to be attended to by Sebastian's vet. A thorough ophthalmologic exam is necessary at your earliest convenience because glaucoma, at least, can blind my patient quickly.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
