I observed one of 10 yearling buck fawn going blind if not completely blind. Fairly healthy. Moms kicking them off about now? Is it polio? Is contagious? I need help quick???

Do you have pictures? Always helpful in trying identify the issue. Ryan

Cervid: Whitetail Deer

Vitamin B and Thiamin is about all that may help but most times not. Not for us anyways. *Like Ryan said. Pic's are good. *Are you sure its not pink eye? * That will run through your animals if one gets it.

Cervid: mule deer,whitetail,elk,goats,bighorn & stone sheep & Alaskan dahl sheep

I'm with Mike on this and also think pink eye.* If the eye is cloudy pinched shut and weeping it is more than likely pink eye.

Nuflor is the first choice with LA- 300 a close second for treatment.

Does the eye look normal or cloudy?
