    Hay in back of eye?

    Today morning I saw my guinea pig had a small piece of hay in his eye and as I tried to get it out but it just seemed to have gone on further into it. When I look at it now there isn't any sign of it so I'm not really sure whether it fell off or not. He's not squinting or anything right now and...

    Hay in the eye and getting treated for it

    Hello! One of my piggies, Ruby, unfortunately got a tiny little piece of hay (or maybe it was hay dust) in her eye two days ago. I tried taking it off but I couldn't and it managed to get under her lower eyelid. So I was freaking out because I'm aware that this can lead to a major eye injury...

    Sprout's Eye

    Might just be me worrying over nothing, but thought I'd make a post anyway. Have noticed that one of Sprout's eyes looks a little cloudy when seen in certain lights. There's no discharge or irritation, so I don't think he's poked it or had a fight with Chutney. Might be a cataract starting? I...
