Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Thankyou very much for the advice, I had already gone ahead and wiped his eyes with a wet cotton bud so at least he can see, they are gunking up every morning at the moment! I clean his litter tray every other day and he has a rat cage so it does need less frequent cleaning overall as its absolutely huge but I think I need to do his little boz/house more frequently incase there is old food etc and urine in there from when he sleeps, I hope it's not too late :(. I've cleaned his house and tried to get him to eat, I got half a ml of water down him but he's spluttering and sneezing etc so much that I didn't want to get water in his lungs so it was difficult. I've given him light cream cheese, banana, apple and sunflower hearts to try to tempt him, he seems interested but he doesn't eat them so it's strange! I'll get him to the vet first thing in the morning anyway. Thanks again for the advice, it's also really great to have two opinions as my vet isn't so small animal savvy!
