My pig, Pete had a very swollen eye the other day. So, I immediately took him to the vet and they treated him for a corneal ulcer. I have been putting antibiotic ointment in his eye twice every day, the swelling has gone down a lot and his eye looks great. However, last night his eye seemed very cloudy and almost blueish. I think he may have gone blind in that eye. What can I do? I don't think he is in pain and he can definitely find his food and his brothers. Thanks!

Call your vet and see what they say. He should probably be looked at again. My vet always has me go for follow up visit after treating for something to make sure all is well.

Thanks. I'll give them a call, he goes back next Wednesday but it may be good to give them a heads up.

Yes, call today to give him an update. He may say bring him in sooner.
