Poppy 's eye

Here is a picture it's the best one I have. Right now she is squinting. She's also pudgy and I am slightly worried about that.

It does look sore. Sometimes they can get a bit of dirty bedding or dust in their eyes and they can get irritated. Has she been scratching it?

Make sure her nest/bed area has nice clean bedding in it. You can try and rinse her eye out a bit if you like (boil the water to sterilize it, then allow it to cool). Hopefully it will improve soon.

It looks sore, definitely. However I would toss it up more to sleeping on dirty bedding than anything more severe. Try cleaning out the bedding in her nest daily for about 3 days and see if there's any improvement.

I wouldn't worry about her being pudgy. She doesn't look so much overweight and even if she were, it's not really concerning - or at least, not that I know of.

I think it depends on the ingredients of the contact solution? I'm not sure. I know there was a link somewhere on a good saline solution brand, I'm sure I could find it.

I doubt that those would be okay. You really need plain saline or sterilized water.
