My female Boer goat has erosion and some ulceration under her

Customer Question

My female Boer goat has erosion and some ulceration under her left eye. I does not appear that she has conjunctivitis. No eye redness or cloudiness of her eye but she does have some clear drainage, like tears, from her eye. I have tried Vetericyn without success as well as a triple antibiotic ointment. She may be pregnant.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
If this ulcer involving the eye ball or the skin under her eye?
Do you see her rubbing this on anything?
Any pus or discharge from the wound? Any crusting, scaling, pimples, or pustules?
If possible, could you take a photo of this? If you can do so and post them online, I am happy to have a look (since it will let me see what you are seeing). To post them, you can either use the wee paper clip on the tool bar.Or you can post them on a 3rd party site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, etc) and paste the web address here.
