I'm not sure what to do... I received in the mail yesterday the two baby red eared sliders
I had ordered. When I first got them they both had their eyes closed and wouldn't open them, then finally one opened both his eyes, and the other only opened one of them.
Still a day has gone by and his eye won't open... but now I have another problem. He had been clawing at is and actually tore his eyelid
! I don't know what to do... now I can see that he is peeking out of the tear in the eyelid and it is still closed. I went to the pet store
and bought turtle eye drops because I thought it would help, but I'm not sure what to do.
Is there a way I can help open his eye without hurting him? Should I just leave it alone? Is this something that can heal on it's own or do I need to do something to help him. I'm just really worried because I don't want him in pain... all I've been doing is worrying since I got him!!!!
Any advice is great! I just want to help him so it doesn't get worse!
