He has an eye...

He has an eye issue, I live in a rural town with only 1 lg animal vet, who I apparently have made mad:(

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the horse?

They say he has an ulcer, but he has been stained twice and nothing shows

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the horse seem to hurt?

We have been treating the ulcer for about 1 month

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

Since they added the antifungal , I see an improvement

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is the horse eating normally?

But I’m not sure if what I think is improvement really is. I have scoured the web looking for pictures of what a healing ulcer looks like,but not much success

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is the horse having trouble peeing or pooing?

Yes eating and drinking fine

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the horse's name?

He has a port in his eye for meds

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the horse?

Colonel He’s IR

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Colonel is being treated for an eye ulcer. It sounds like the recent change in medication is working. Is Colonel showing signs of squinting or excessive tears?
