The Tobra could certainly be causing burn/irritation and essentially preventing the healing. Maybe your Vet can prescribe an alternate antibiotic and artificial tear compound.

I have no idea how "new" this medication is as the article was not dated...but it sounds interesting.
Ask your Vet about it.

"The newest medical therapy for corneal ulcers is Adequan Eye Drops (Rx) mixed with artificial tears to create a solution that is 5% polysulfated glycosaminoglycans (PSGAG). In a recent test, the solution, applied three times a day, improved non-healing corneal ulcers in 85% of the pets treated."

hi everyone, just wanted to update you on Rico. I’m sorry I took this long. I’ve been so busy. Rico went back to the vet when I didn’t see any changes with the antibiotic eye drop and they said it was an indolent ulcer on his eye, meaning it wasn’t healing. So they did surgery on his eye on the 25th of April. They scratched the surface of his eye to encourage healing, and stitched the eyelid closed for 14 days. They left a small opening for me to continue putting in the antibiotic drops. I also started putting in some Optixcare lubricant drops in both eyes. So fast forward to today, the stitches were removed and the ulcer healed up. He has some cloudiness on the eye but it’s fading away and almost completely gone. I have never been so worried and stressed. I am so thankful for all of your prayers and positive thoughts for my boy. I am so relieved he is healed. It was a tough time but we got through it. Thanks again.
