She still has a very small amount of discharge and some days she doesn't want to open her eye fully but she looks as though she is getting better slowly.
It doesn't help that we have had this cold wind and she insists on standing on the outside of her shelter rather than inside
She was also lame on a front foot this week - it is impossible to clean her feet regularly as even the farrier has difficulty getting her to lift her feet but we managed to get a small stone out so hopefully the foot is just bruised rather than the start of an abcess (which she is prone to).
The farrier is due soon so he will sort her out
Hope Bella is feeling better today. I now keep a stock of bute, atropine and eye drops in the fridge in case holly's eru flares up. Poor Bella, she really isn't having a nice time at the moment. Fingers crossed she will soon feel much better.

Apart from getting out of her stable and trashing the yard the other morning, when he was putting her back in, Bodger noticed a huge swelling below her ear that was very tender - another call out for the vet.....
....she has diagnosed an abcess that is not ready to lance so we are now injecting Bella with Pen & Strep - the sachets of antibiotics on food are much less traumatic
