What does a normal horses eye look like?
The cornea should be clear, the eyelids should conform nicely to the globe, and the area beneath the eye should be dry. You should be able to readily see the entire iris and pupil and the iris should typically be the same color throughout although some horses such as Paints can have a multicolor iris that is normal.
How much does it cost to have a horses eye removed?
The procedure can cost between $2,500 and $3,500 (including the cost of the prosthetic), which sounds costly, but may be a worthwhile investment to save a prize horse’s show career.
How do you treat a horse’s eye injury?
In most cases treatment will involve the use of eye ointment or drops in combination with oral or injectable anti-inflammatory and/or antibiotic medication. Do not use eye drops or ointments prescribed for another horse as they might contain the wrong medication or may spread infection.
