Hello! So here's the story. Yesterday his eye was just fine but when i suddenly woke up from my sleep and decided to check on my joeys. One of them have this white gunky object in his eye which has similar consistency to snots. He lives with another male glider who is older than him. They don't fight very often and their cage is cleaned regularly. He's also 2 years old now.
So could it be injuries from scratches? Or is it an infection? I don't bother to wipe or do anything with it because i might cause further damage to his eye.
It's around 2 am right now and I won't be able to see the vets
until 8-10am due to my time zone. So i'd like to ask if any of you guys have had a similar issue like this and what can i do before taking him to the vets
and also what could've been done to prevent it?
Also he shows a sign of annoyance and irritation from it and seems to have a worsen vision. He's very grouchy and won't let me handle him often due to his past (Yes! i rescued him when he was around 7 months old) but now i can handle him for some reason.
