I bought terramycin and an anti microbial eye wash but he won’t let me apply them, I need to know if what I got isn’t gonna treat his eye and if I should him to a vet (the are around his eye is wet because I tried applying the ointment)

Thank you for connecting with us. First of all, a photo would be very helpful in this case. Cherry eye(third eyelid gland prolapse) often appears as a red swollen mass on the lower eyelid. In other words, the gland is in an abnormal position and it eventually will affect tear production if left untreated. The cherry eye might be treated with prescription anti-inflammatory drops. However, surgery is the most effective and fast way to treat the cherry eye. You should visit the clinic before concluding to treat her with a non-surgical method. Also, please do note that a confirmative diagnosis can only be made at the clinic as nothing can be assessed from here just by descriptions.

If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us!

Thank you.
