In our last video we shared with you we though we had a pinkeye outbreak on our homestead. We Were Wrong.
Noticing swollen and cloudy eyes on our Buck Burk we decided that we had a pinkeye problem.
We started treating the buck for pinkeye, and we emailed a mentor of ours about how to properly address the problem.
Fortunately for us our mentors mentioned looking to see if the goats eyelids were inverted. This is a problem common among livestock.
Entropion Eyelids are eyelids that grow into the eye.
Instead of seeing a clear line of an eyelid with eyelashes sticking out, you will see eyelids rolled into the eye, and the eyelashes will scratch the eye, causing cloudiness and infection.
We inspected our goat closely and found that this indeed was the problem, and now we can begin treating the buck for entropion eyelids!
