One of my 4-H families has a pig with an eye infection in only one eye (puffy and drainage) and his other pig (two only) is now tilting its head like it has either water in the ear or an ear infection. Is there a relationship to these two issues - one specific germ that we could treat? I thought about treating it like pink eye and squirting some pen in the eye area. Just curious to opinions.
I would treat the one with the tilting head for ear infection ASAP !
Doubt if it is the same thing causing both issues. But I would treat them both. Ear infections can go bad quickly and ruin a good pig - treat with an antibiotic. The eye may be due to trauma since it is only in one eye - flush the eye out and clean well. With the drainage, could be a pathogen involved - LA-200 is often one of my first go-to treatments for eye infections.
what is the best treatment to use for an ear infection?
