1/2013 - Zboy's owner noticed a purulent eye discharge with crusty debris on the lids. The owner cleaned with saline and applied an OTC eye ointment which seemed to help.
2/2013 - Several weeks later Zboy's owner noticed a raised bump on the upper cornea.
3/2013 - On the first veterinarian's exam there was concern for a potential corneal tumor. 1% fluorouracil was prescribed but administration was difficult.
5/15/2013 - At this point there had been a very poor response to the topical therapy and removal of the eye had been scheduled. At this point Ramaekers Equine Immune Formula was started.
