Eyelid Lacerations in Jersey Cows

Eyelid Lacerations in Jersey Cows

Have you ever noticed that your cow has been injured in the eye? Typical first sighs include a scratch, swelling, or inability to open the eye. If you see this in your Jersey cow, call your vet. A cow’s eyelids not only protect the eye, but they also help keep the eye moist and lubricated. If there is a tear, the eye is at risk of becoming dry which could cause further injury or damage to the eye. Once your vet arrives on the scene, he will most likely sew or suture up the eyelid. Never remove or cut any part of the eyelid even if it’s hanging from the eye. Eyelids are well protected and are quite easy to sew together or repair. Suturing or sewing the eyelid back together will help speed healing time. In addition, your vet may prescribe medication to decrease pain.
