[YEA] Hello! One of our goats had an eye infection last week. The eye was swollen, glassy looking, and had a discharge. We have no idea how he got this. Perhaps an injury that got infected?
Anyway, he is a young buck and not very tame. Usually, I would treat an eye infection topically, with chamomile, charcoal, colloidal silver or coconut oil. That didn't seem feasible with this guy.
When in doubt, turmeric is my go-to. Blood purifier, anti-biotic, anti-inflammatory....it has always come through for me.
He is one of four goats and they eat together...turmeric is great for all of them, so we just gave 2 Tablespoons mixed into their feed each day. So this 40 pound buck was getting 1.5 teaspoons of turmeric in a day. Two days later his eye was 90% better. This is amazing to me! My son said his eye had looked like they eye of a dead animal! Now, five days after beginning treatment, the eye looks completely normal!
Yay for turmeric!! ~Mama to Many~
