My female hamster is about 1 year old and today i noticed she has a weepy eye which seems to be stuck shut. I have managed to open it myself and clean it. There was some dark red discharge from the eye. I could not see any white around the eye. She is looking very lethergic and not her normal self and sometimes not sleeping in her bed. Just hunched up in the corner. Any advice?
Sounds like an eye infection. Quickest way to cure that is a visit to the vet for the proper medication. I recommend calling first to see if they'd be willing to take a quick look. Not all handle pocket pets.
