What could be wrong with my dogs eye?
HELP! My 7 y/o Australian terrier got into a bunny nest, her eye got red and she squinted. Vet said she had a small scratch on cornea, put her on Neomycin/polymxin ointment e/8 hrs for 7days. No improvment but he said the scratch was gone. Put her on IC Prednisolone AC 1%, 1 drop e/8hrs for 5 days. No improvement. She was sedated and eye flushed, it was full of mucus, but no FB or abnormality found, she was put on Cyclosporine 0.2% ointment e/12 hrs for 2 weeks. It was appearing to get a little less red and puffy, now after 2 weeks, it is back to the white area being red and swollen and a white mucus discharge. She squints all the time.
Help Please, I don't want her to suffer anymore but nothing seems to help her, and the expense is adding up with no results. What could be wrong?
Thank you for any advice you have to offer!
