Thanks so much, I am just downloading these now.

Bless him, Bagel is very sweet!

We can see his third eyelids are slightly raised, inflamed and red.

He also has quite thick yellow/green discharge.

There are a few considerations here including:

  • A viral or bacterial conjunctivitis
  • A reaction to grit or dust causing irritation
  • An environmental allergy
  • A corneal ulcer
  • Etc.

As signs aren't resolving with time and cleaning, a vet visit is important.

We'd want to flush the eyes and examine them, staining for any ulcers.

He likely needs some prescription topical antibiotics and perhaps some oral anti inflammatories too.

At home, do continue bathing the eyes.

If he begins rubbing them, we can use a buster collar to protect them.

Sure thing and wishing Bagel all the very best.
