One of my younger degus has been exhibiting signs of cataracts in both eyes and today i noticed one of his eyes has sealed shut...any ideas or medications that would work? unfortunately i don't know of any local vets that care for exotic pets/rodents...

Help my poor guy if you know how!

Where are you located? I would call your local vet and ask for a referral to one that treats exotics.

What do you feed your degus and where did you get them? Is there any eye discharge?

I live in Boston.
I feed them hay and some guinea big food/chinchilla food (alternating). This one I got from someone in Long Island who had degu babies so I honestly don't know how inbred he may be.
If there is any discharge it's clear and there's very little.
He's about 10 months old...
