Question:Hello, I took my 5 year old Pit Bull to be seen for cloudy eyes and a red spot on his eye which I found out was an ulcer from a scratch if I'm not mistaken. This was on 12-23-16 and again on 01-06-17. I was prescribed Vetropolycin ointment and Carprofen however I don't think that the ointment is making his eye any better. Is there a stronger medicine I can give him? I was looking at Can-C eye drops for dogs however I am no professional and would like some advice. Thank you for your input.

Answer:I would not recommend that you make any eye care decisions on your own at home when dealing with a corneal eye ulcer as that could be risky. Best to return to vet for recheck and restain of eye, as he or she best qualified to make decision about changing eye antibiotics, etc. She may have other issue here such as condition called deep or indolent ulcer, which may need other approach such as flap surgery, etc
