Swollen eye on baby PD
My husband and I just got 3 new baby Prairie Dogs, ordered from a breeder in S.D. We have health certificates, etc. and no reason to think anything wrong - but one PD's lower eyelid started swelling 1 day after we got him, now its shut and another PD's lower eyelid starting to swell. It's only one eye on each, the other eye looks fine and they seem to be eating okay. They sleep a lot but they are still babies. We thought the first one might've scratched his eye on metal in cage (sticking his head through) - they are only 6-8 weeks old and I don't want to do anything too traumatic. They are handable. Now that the other one is looking the same, I'm worried its spreading and I need to separate the 3rd. Please help if anyone has had anything similar?? I heard to flush out the eyes with warm water - I'm too worried about trying anything more and hoping it'll just run its course. Help please - thanks!
