Hello. My little potato is having issues with a slight watery eye. No damp fur, crusty eyes, or anything else noticeable. However, when I hold him and he shoves himself under my chin, I can feel the moisture.
He's eating normally, destroying hay like a pig, drinking, loving snacks. Active and his usual sassy self.
I don't know if I'm being paranoid or if I should really be concerned.
Its been off and on like this for about a week. No visible injury or stuff stuck in the eyeball. Only thing I can think of is maybe he dove head first into some hay out of excitement and irritated it. Or maybe even a hair stuck?

If this is unusual for him, I suggest you see a vet.

My Edward had a watery eye a few months ago. It turned out he had mild conjunctivitis. A course of antibacterial eye drops prescribed by my vet soon cleared it up

Keep an eye on it and if worried, see a vet. it is hopefully just a slight irritation from a bit of hay dust etc. gettting under the lid.
