Hello again Josette, Sorry to hear what happened to Greyce, however I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. This is one situation where I am reluctant to suggest home remedies, hopefully this is something minor but in my experience eye injuries can often deteriorate in a dramatic and irrecoverable fashion if they are not promptly attended to. This could be a wasted visit but the safest thing to do is to have the eye checked by a vet ASAP, even if this means using an ER vet. 2. In the meantime the chances are you will not be doing any harm if you very gently apply a cold compress to the eye.I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you. Regards, ***** ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
