Switch has a swollen eye

Post by katherine on Mon Aug 20, 2012 7:22 am

Hi guys,

Just got back off holiday to find Switch a little sorry for himself Sad He looks thinner and older and his left eye looks big and sort of red in the middle and I think the left side of his face is swollen all over. It looks a bit like Albie's funny eye did Sad Anyway pic below.

Hmm - I agree with what's already been said on NFRS - antibiotics and possibly fucithalmic eye ointment.

have spoken to you on FB, but will reply here for anyone else wondering Smile Fucithalmic is something you get from the vet, but may be able to get without consult from some vets. It's good for a variety of eye issues.

All the best for Switchy... let me know how he goes.
