Pink Eye
« on: September 13, 2020, 08:23:14 AM »
I have a steer that had pink eye this summer. I didn't catch it very early and it formed white over the eye. I did treat him with Draxin. His eye has gotten a lot better, but his eye is still cloudy. It has been probably 2 months since I first treated him. Will his eye always be cloudy? or is there a way I can get it cleared up? I can try and post a picture later. Any help would be appreciated!

It will always be cloudy or have a spot in it.

one shot of draxxin and veterycin pink eye spray twice a day for a couple days, its pricey but effective

We used to use LA200, but it doesn't seem to be as effective anymore.  The best remedy is fly control.  I've used the IGR lick tanks the past 2 years and pink eye problems have been next to non-existent.  In smaller pens I use the bagged granular or blocks.
