Katharine's Eye Infection Hits Again-Vet Visit and Eye Drops
Before I left, Katharine seemed to becoming quiet and then while I was gone, she developed goop in her eyes. I took her to the vet Tuesday (offices were closed Monday due to Labor Day) and she has an eye infection but one that is probably brought on by the herpes virus. Since Saturday, we've given extra lysine (which fights off the herpes virus) and when she seemed feverish Sunday, I began giving her Buprenex .2ml twice a day. By Tuesday, she had a normal temp. The vet gave antibiotic eye drops. By Wednesday she had no eye goop. She will take the eye drops for two weeks. Meanwhile, I'm giving everyone extra lysine.
