Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.


Is the eyeball swollen to the tissue around it?
Does the eye ball look hazy/cloudy?

Could he have injured or bumped the eye?

How long has the yellow crust been present?

Can you take a photo of this? If you can do so and post them online, it will let me see what you are seeing. To post them, you can either use the paper clip on the tool bar. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web address here for me to have a peek.
