Thanks for the advice. I just got back from the "steam" session. This is also of benefit to myself, as I said, I'm sick as well, maybe Balki is feeling sympathy pains lol!
I turned the tub on all the way hot and let it run until the whole room was fogged up. I also ran a fresh terry towel under the hot water for him. I let the towel cool enough so as not to burn him, then turned off the water and got Balki. He was very well behaved. First I just sat with him on my lap for 1 minute. Then, I put the warm terry towel over his head for 1 minute, he was ok for the minute, then struggled. Then I folded the towel up and just held it to his "boo-boo" eye for another minute, again he was ok. But, that was all he would tolerate, then he wanted out, so I didn't force him to stay. He seems better for now, has a huge appetite, eye is open with no present discharge, and he is currently in the bathroom jumping at the shower curtain!
So you think he will need more antibiotics even though he just finished a full round? I worry about building resistance and all. I understand the eye ointment, if there is no improvement in his eye by tommorrow, I'll certainly start him on it with the vet's approval. I'll use antibiotics as well if needed, I would just want to make sure he is truely sick before making him go through that again.
