Hi there, I am a VERY worries Sully Mommy!! Yardi our 21yr old Sully has been happly enjoying the warm sun and all was good yesterday morning. Yesterday afternoon I noticed him rubbing his right eye on his front leg. I went out to further investigate and his eye was swollen and his inner eyelid closed. I have a friend that is a vet from Australia who owns many torts come over and she gave me a antibiotic eye ointment and told me to put warm compresses on his eye then apply ointment twice a day (it looked like a insect bite). I came home from work tonight 12:00am (I am a vet tech at the pet ER) and went to treat his left eye and now his right eye is the same way. He has been locked in out screened in porch sense yesterday and he has a E=collar on so he can't rub his eye. I don't know what to do. I found one vet that will see him but the soonest thing they have open in Monday. I broke out the ophthalmic ointment we gave my Sphynx when her eyes were swollen from a URI. I am heart broken knowing he feels like crap. Yesterday I could get him to eat and tonight he didn't even want any watermelon. :(

This was yesterday afternoon (left eye)
