Hi! Welcome and thanks for using Just Answer. I am Dr. Laura. I am a veterinarian with 20 years of experience with small animals. I am sorry you are having this problem with Delano.
Is the discharge from the eye clear, yellow or green?
If the discharge is yellow or green then ot probably an eye infection. If it is clear then ot may just be irritation or inflammation in the eye. If It does sound like an eye infection, I would recommend getting an eye ointment called Terramycin to help.  You can buy this online, at a farm store or some pet stores.  If you live in California you would need to get an eye gel called Microcyn or Vetricyn instead.
Do you have any other questions?
Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for using Just Answer!
