Panqueca, adult female, short-haired.

On 12/27/2010 the conjuctiva around Panqueca's left eye seemed reddish. Her left eye looked same way the following afternoon, but turned cloudy that night. Vet has done fluoresceine test, no corneal damage. Diagnosed uveitis and conjunctivitis due to trauma (hay poke?). Applied subcutaneous Baytril, meloxicam and dipyrone. Treatment iniciated: clean her eye with cool chamomile tea before applying ophtalmic ointment (gentamicin + hydrocortisone + Vitamin A + Vitamin D) 3 times a day.

Treatment cleared the cloudiness up in about 8 days. More below.
