Goopy eye in my guinea pig!

My guinea pig has a goopy eye....and it gets real crusty and stays shut. Does anyone know what this could be? I have been giving him warm towels on the eye every couple of hours.

Thanks...

Lola

Re: Goopy eye in my guinea pig!

When Guinea Pigs wash they produce a mucus from their eyes. It sounds like she has an infection and could need some antibiotics and drops for the eye. Use some warm water and a cotton ball to clean the eye. and take it to the vets.
