An interesting home cure for pinkeye.
The old timers should put it in their own eye first and see how they likes it..........
"A number of other treatments have been recommended for pinkeye treatment. Injection under the layer covering the eyeball has been documented to aid healing but must be done correctly or eye damage can occur. Since this is an extra-label use of an antibiotic it must only be done under the direction of the herd veterinarian.* Injection in or under the eyelid itself would be expected to give NO help in healing. Likewise milk injection has no documented benefit.
*this is no longer an accurate statement..it does sometimes (Draxxin and Nuflor) need to be prescribed, but the herder can administer it themselves..
