Our one year old, Nola, has had eye issues for a while. We've seen the vet, and a specialist who prescribed us with all sorts of medication. Originally she had an ulcer in her left eye, which has seemed to get better, but now its her right eye that seems to really be bothering her. The vet currently has us giving her Zaditor (Ketotifen), then Optimmune, then after an hour NeoPolyDex. Also, she recommended we give her 50mg of benedryl twice daily in case its allergic. We are also giving her a pain pill prescribed by the vet to make her feel better. We started doing this on Thursday, and the vet plucked a few hairs from her eye area that might have been irritating her. Friday, we called the vet to tell her it had gotten worse and that Nola now keeps her right eye shut all the time. The vet didn't have any advice and said to bring her in. Rather than adding another $100-200 of costs, I thought I'd consult the forum here.
Has anyone experienced an eye irritation like this? Could it be allergic/food caused? Could there be something in the air now that its spring??
Any advice is appreciated!
