Tsunami has had a bad eye for over 2 months. I thought it would be easy to cure by using first aid antibiotic ointment. Maybe it was to old, but it did nothing. I tried squirting diluted first aid honey into the eye. No real results. I decided I'd better get serious. Read on line to try Terramycin ointment and have been applying it at least three times per day for almost a week. It seems somewhat better but is not healed. Three days ago my husband said she may have something in her eye and suggested I try washing it out with saline water. The only way to accomplish this is with his help : ). We've been "washing" her eye out once a day since then. It is better but still not completely. Her whole eye socket seems somewhat swollen. My son suggested she may need an oral antibiotic. Thats when I remembered you and wonder if you have any suggestions.

I am not a vet and not nearly the herbalist that Patrick is but if I wanted an herbal oral to control bacteria I would use INFXN - Bug Buster.

There is also a product called Visionary that is available. ... rt-formula

An eye infection that won't resolve with multiple antibiotics is likely due to a foreign body in the eye. I'd have a vet look at her then get back to us with what they find.
