Can rats get

Well here goes, my female rat kisses was ok earlier today, and a few hours ago when I took her back out one of her eyes are blood red then in the center is a grey-ish cloudy color. So I was wondering since rodents are prone to blindness can they et cataracts as well? If so how long does it take for signs to be totally visible? Is there a chance it is an infection? Sheis a (black eye rattie) I am going to call the vet asap tomorrow hopefully he's in and we can get her checked out.

Well it's Not cataracts or anything thankfully. It's an eye infection possibly from a scratch or something but the vet gave me an antibiotic for her. I am so happy it's nothing too bad. I mean an infection is bad but it cvould've been way worse.

Yay, I'm glad it's not something too serious. I'm sure the meds will clear it up in no time.
