IBR - Blindness

Postby KY Small Farmer » Sun May 07, 2017 9:10 am

I'm having an IBR outbreak. A couple of cow already have the cloudy eye. Will their sight return?

It has for us, but we treated the eye with direct injection of antibiotic. Don;t recall what we used since that was 12 years ago and I've slept since then

Dun, I'm worse than u are but I think the injection into the membrane of the eyeball is 1cc pen and 1cc dex. But it might be 2cc pen.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

Just talked to the vet. He says about any antibiotic will work with a bit of dex thrown in.
I personaly would stay away from any of the tet ones because of the irritation factor
