Default Re: Barney

Hi Cheryl,
I am sorry Barney's eye is still causing problems. Now this is my interpretation but the eye protects itself but putting a film/skin over the ulcer and that then stops the ulcer from healing. Buddy was on the cyclopoirin ointment and the specialist said she though it was the best treatment to heal the ulcer before the skin covered it again. After the initial surgery treatment I had to continue using the cyclosporin ointment every morning and we used Acular (small amount of steroid I think) drops every night. This was a forever thing but it worked. Hoping you get something that sorts our Barney's eye.
