I haven't posted on here in years! But I'm desperate to find someone who has had experience with these nasty eye ulcers. My horse has been being treated since Friday but isn't responding to the antibiotic drops we have been using. My options now are: 1) surgery to put grafts in - VERY expensive! But I would like to know how people's horses recovered and the results. She is expected to lose up to 40% vision if we do this. 2) let the eye rupture and continue treatment. This is going to take a long time (1-3 months). Apparently the eye can heal itself and providing there are no further problems this can be done. If she is in too much pain or not healing then eye will have to be removed. My concern is having to put my poor old girl through the pain and prolonged treatment - she's not happy being locked up and would be looking at weekly vet trips (this costs approx half as much as the surgery to fix it IF it heals within a month, continual treatment means continual cost. Also similar cost for one month treatment as to remove the eye). 3) remove the eye (half the cost of surgery to fix it and same price as one months treatment). What would you do? I would love to hear the good and bad about either surgeries. My horse is 21yrs and already sour about being treated and locked up. Any advice appreciated.
