Hi there,Thanks for your question regarding your girl Zazzal. I am currently typing up a response and will have something for you in the next few minutes.Thank you for your patience.Kind Regards,Dr E
Hi again,Thank you for your patience. There are a number of reasons why Zazzal is squiting in one eye, including anything from simple conjunctivitis to a corneal ulcer or a foreign body under the third eyelid(s). Given this has been going on for a while, we certainly have to consider a corneal ulcer, or even an internal eye issue such as uveitis or even glaucoma. If Zazzal isn't in too much discomfort and is only squinting (and not pawing at her eye), then you could just try some cool black tea. Just use some cotton wool to gently apply this to both eyes 3 - 4 x daily for a week. If there isn't much improvement by tomorrow morning, or if she is rubbing her eye or seems to be in discomfort, you will need to get her seen by your local vet in the morning. I hope all of the above makes sense? If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask!

How has Zazzal's eye been overnight? Has is improved, or will you get her seen by your local vet today?
