Symptoms and Treatment
He now has some small white growths around his face. The picture is not so clear but you can see bright white spots. Shortly after the spot appeared he came down with pop eye which affected both eyes. I have treated with Interpret Anti Internal Bacteria for the past week and both eyes have returned to their normal size. I am still treating with the Anti Bacterial but the white growths remain and he is lethargic although eating a bit now. I really don't know what these growths are and if they are bacterial or fungal. Getting worried as they have spread now. Thanks in advance for any advice!
