Did the vet perform a fluorescein stain test? What antibiotics have you tried/are trying?

It you look i have pics of Holly eyes looked just like that last year. She had allergies that caused her to get infections in her eyes. A few days of Terramycin antibiotic eye ointment cleared hers right up.

Everyone seems to gravitate to allergy so we'll see what is involved with diagnosing that. She got the ZiwiPeak Venison & Fish, but then our store was out so we grabbed the Lamb formula. We switched back to the Venison & Fish when this problem happened, just in case.

Yes, we had a stain done... Nothing at all that prevented her from going onto the steroid ointment. No scratches or infection on the eye itself. This was last week, so may have changed (we go back to the vet tomorrow)

She is on Clavaseptin now, which is amoxicillin and clavulanic acid. We could try a different antibiotic.

She was also on two different eye ointments previously - the typical, some sort of "mycin", sulfate, etc. One had a steroid. One didn't. Neither helped. The steroid one appeared to worsen the eyelids so we stopped it after 2-3 days.

Since so many antibiotics haven't worked, maybe you could get a culture done? To me it looks like a conjunctivitis/infection case.

I looked at the pics over and over. I'm afraid I don't have much to suggest; and this is a long shot at that; but is it possible she had a bot fly?? I've seen them in cats at the vet clinic I used to work for. They are not common but as you mentioned the other treatments haven't been working, it's possible that's what it is. Especially with how you described how it initially showed up. On PETMD's site it mentions:

"Opthalmic symptoms:

Lesions (caused by the larvae in the eyeball)"

via: Botflies (Maggots) in Dogs | petMD

Again it's a long shot, but I figured since you're looking for any suggestion it was worth mentioning. Good luck and I hope it improves!
