Red/inflamed eye, labored breathing, hunched posture

Post by pokemonsz on Mon 10 Sep 2018, 8:11 pm

Hello all, you may remember me from earlier in the year. Unfortunately I am back to ask about a health issue with my Benji.
Here is a photo of his eye, which I noticed about half a week ago as red. No weeping or anything, just red. But now he breathes very heavily and is generally hunched. He is about 8-9 months old.

Has anyone seen this before? I know these are bad signs. Is there a way I can clean his eye?

Thank you. Love

I had similar looking eye problems with my boy, Daryl. My vet and I never did find a cause or a solution. We tried different antibiotics and eye ointments, tried eliminating things from his home and diet. Nothing worked. But he never developed any breathing problems. Definitely try to get your guy an appointment with your vet. Hunched over with abnormal breathing = vet appointment asap. Please let us know how he does.

We went to the vet today! Things learned:
He is a healthy weight, 35 grams.
His eye looks just like a scratch on the lid, not infected.
He doesn't show signs of respiratory infection beyond the hunched posture and heavy breathing.
He is generally still strong and active and eating. He was running around trying to escape the vet .

There is a hurricane coming so I got antibiotics in the case that I need them. I figure It would be a good thing to have around anyway. It's likely I'll start a ten day course of these tomorrow. (sulfameth/trimeth)

She also recommended a deep clean of his bin so I'll do that tonight and see if he improved.
