Dandelion seems a bit better

This morning when I let the girls out Dandelion didn’t have any crust on her right eye. I haven’t seen any eye bubbles today. This is a good sign.

This morning Dandelion’s right eye was completely clear

She went straight to the tylan water then the tylan mash. I think that perhaps getting them back on the tylan straight away has nipped this in the bud.

I am aware that this means it’s probably lingering just under the surface and isn’t clearing up completely. Dandelion is the most vulnerable of the girls and I think any cold spells will probably bring on a relapse.

What I hope to do is to treat at any time there is a relapse and try to get the girls safely through to spring in the hope that that will bring about a complete recovery. There is no way of knowing if they will completely recover as only time will tell but I hope that once we get to warmer weather there will be a good chance of recovery.

All the girls including Emerald and Speckles still sneeze from time to time but they don’t seem to be showing any other sign of this. I can only continue as we are and keep hoping that we will come through this.

    I’ve just read through lots of posts catching up. It seemed that you’d eradicated the issue and was horrible to read that it is probably lingering. However it’s good that you can see an improvement today and I hope there is.

    • I think it has been underlying all along because the sneezing never ceased but every now and again it flares up again. Dandelion seems back on track now though and I am more hopeful that we will eventually get through this when spring comes.
