Hi all,
I believe my Guinea pig Jasper has cherry eye (please see photo)
he appears as normal eating and his happy self. I have cleaned his eye with sterile water and he appears ok.

my question is really is there any drops I can get from my chemist for him over this weekend to help treat this? I won’t be able to take him vets till Monday. I was reading some old posts from this group and I saw optramex drops for conjunctivitis are recommended but wanted to make sure

many thanks and TTIA6BDA68C5-5435-4EB3-962E-291BC329578F.jpeg

I wouldn’t use anything in case it masks or makes worse the symptoms. One day hopefully shouldn’t make a difference.

Please don’t give any medication which hasn’t been prescribed by a vet. You could inadvertently do more harm or make it harder for the vet to diagnose.
