chinchilla eye crusted shut
I have a problem with one of my chinchillas. For awhile now, it seems that the fur around her eye pokes her in the eye. Usually this makes her eye slightly smaller than the other one, but this morning I woke up and noticed that the corner of her eye was crusted shut. I put a warm compress on the eye and it opened up enough for me to look at it. There appears to be no redness, which makes me believe that it may not be necassary for the vet to look at it (at this point). I did give her a dust bath last night. What should I do, any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
