064958BB-DA7F-4006-95E9-5840F8AD542A.jpegThis pig was attacked by her sister and bit around her eye. Does anyone have any medical advice? Does it look serious enough to take her to the vet? Is there anything we could do to prevent an infection? Please help!
(Note: the wound did seem to scab although she is itching at it and she does seem comfortable and she’s eating food. I just want to make sure that it doesn’t get worse or get infected

Please have your girl seen by the vet soon. Any injury to eyes can be seen by any vet as treatment is the same across animals. We don’t give medical advice because we’re not vets and also don’t support home treatments. I would try to get her seen as soon as possible.

It’s easier if you attach a photo rather than use a link.

:agr: This is an emergency. I hope that you have managed to get her seen by a vet as an emergency.

Poor little girl.
She does need to see a vet as a matter of urgency
