    Is Optrex Eye Wash ok?

    Hi Everyone, one of my little piggies has had wet near the front of his eye, which ends up being crusty.

    Rex Problems?

    I was recently chatting to a piggy rescuer who mentioned that rex's can have problems with hair/eye brows growing so they curl into their eyes? I was just wondering if anyone had heard of this, and whether there's a way to prevent it? I've never seen that on my girl so far but she is young.
