blind degu? cataracts?
I have an 8 month old male degu, a few days ago I notice his left eye was glossy. I have a total of 7 degus, right now I am training 2 of them so they get a bit more attention the the other 5, but they all get attention everyday, so I know he wasent like this before, I haven't noticed any injury to his eye, nor do I see any scarring on his cornea. I'm wondering what might have caused this? I feed them a very full diet of degu pellets and always a full supply of timothy hay. Once or twice a week they get their treats and a bit of veggies. About a week ago, the pet store I get food at shut down without notice, I am waiting on a shipment of degu food, they have been eating guinea pig food( its the closest in fat and sugar that I could find) and O.F. oats. Coulf this have caused it? I am extremly worried he won't be abl to see anymore or that this might affect his other eye, I don't have a vet in my area that is willing to look at him. PLEASE HELP!?!?
