Eye Infection in Both of Dog's Eyes
Maltese with TWO Eye Infections
My 3 year old Maltese started with an eye infection two weeks ago. We took him to our vet who did a glaucoma test and said he had conjunctivitis. She put him on eye drops of neomycin polymyxin dexamethasone of 5ml.
After almost a week and drops were gone he still wasn't better - seemed to maybe clear a little for a few day, but got worse.
We took him back to our vet who did another glaucoma test and put him on more of the same drops. Now a week later and we picked up a third bottle or the same drops from same vet and she wants max to see an eye specialist.
His eyes are very crusted and swollen inside and around. Drainage is greenish and his third eyelid is showing. His eyes are also very bloodshot.
He seems to be in good spirits but that comes and goes since he is sometimes not wanting to open his eyes.
Maxx eats Trader Joe's premium lamb meal with no corn wheat or soy. We give him veggies, bananas, eggs and fish regularly with his food.
He is not very active as far as walks go but usually has a few play bursts per day and he is a great cuddlier.
