Question Degu with one eye closed stilll after birth

Hey all My deguses had six babies five days ago. Five of them have both eyes open, but one of them has one of his/her eyes still closed. Now my friends told me this is normal when this comes to cats and dogs, but these aren`t, so I was wondering if anyone has experienced this before and how to proceed.

Thank you in advance.

Rgs,

Trine

Is the eye tight shut or partly? He/she should really have it open by now especially if the other eye is open. Give him/her a few days and see what happens if its still the same, i would firstly if you can without causing too much stress gently lift him out and have a look to see if you can see a problem, you could try wriping it with a damp piece of cotton wool to make sure its not stuck down with any matter i.e fluids from birth, urine, etc.... If its still the same then i would talk to a vet and see what they say

Hi Thanks for your advice. Suddenly his eye was open, so fortunately I didn`t have to try with the cotton wool. They are all fine and healthy now.

Rgs,
