    Default Cornea ulcer

    We had to take Castor to the vet today and came back with three different kinds of eye drops. Last night we noticed that he kept one of his eyes closed and was trying to scratch at it, and it turned out he has a cornea ulcer. The strange thing is that we have no idea when this happened, or how - perhaps he ran into a grass or twig or something.

    The vet said the ulcer is superficial, but that it still may take time to heal. Now I just hope he won't start scratching at it - I'm quite sure he wouldn't like to wear a cone.

    Oh poor Castor! That must hurt! I'm sure the drops will help and he will heal faster than he would if he was older. Those things do take a while to heal.

    oh no. When harvey had the ulcer, we put the inflatable doughnut around his neck so he would not scratch his eyes. Good Luck. With medication, it will heal in a week.

    Thanks for the tip - the inflatable ones look somewhat more wearable. Will check that out if needed. Did you keep it on all day and night or only if he was left unsupervised?

    we left it on even when he sleeps. We take it off when its time for him to eat.

    How is Castor doing? Our Frenchie did this about a year ago and it was so sad as it appeared so painful, we did drops/ontiment for, I think 2 weeks

    Thanks for asking! We have an appointment at the vet's tomorrow. Castor has been very calm and hasn't scratch or anything, which we hope is a good sign. Poor Castor misses his sheep friends (they do look a like goats but are actually a Swedish sheep breed!) - after we got back to town, we looked at one of our films that had sound, and he ran around looking for them here!

    Quick and positive update on Castor's eye - the vet said it's healing well! We'll go back for a new check up in a couple of weeks to make sure the eye looks ok, but so far so good.
