Hi everyone! Checked on the gliders this morning to see one with the inner corner (third eyelid?) swollen and red with what looks to be like a little scratch in the corner (blurry picture attached). I'm guessing someone's nail got caught on her eye and now it is possibly infected. Unfortunately, none of the vets in town that are open on Sundays see gliders. One said they could take a look but recommended just waiting until tomorrow to see my regular vet if the glider didn't appear to be in pain. In the meantime, is there any over the counter stuff I can use to help her out? Human eye drops to help lubricate or creams/neosporin safe for glider eyes? Thanks!

She does have something going on, I hope your able to get her into the vet today.

I can't believe that those vets could look at that eye and prescribe some antibiotics and antibiotic drops for they eye with instructions to follow up with your normal vet.

Please keep us posted on her progress.
