Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. This is probably some conjunctivitis he is having right now. I would recommend applying Genteal to both eyes every 12 hours, which is an over the counter eye ointment. I would also recommend giving Benadryl (1mg/lb) every 12 hours to reduce the swelling. I would recommend getting him in to see the vet so he can get on an antibiotic ointment sometime this week. Let me know if you have any other questions.

If you have a moment to fill out a positive review (by clicking on the **stars** at the top of the page) for me I would greatly appreciate it. This is the only way the website can credit me for my time. Thank you so much and good luck!
