Constant Closed Eyes

Postby MaddyKay99 » Tue Feb 26, 2019 2:59 pm

I have a 3 month old Merauke BTS who has had some health issues like a RI however those are cleared up now. However, he has his eyes closed a lot, even when I am near him and holding him or he is awake and turns to face me. Like when I take him out to give him a shot or weigh him he will not open his eyes when I lift his hide, nor when I stroke his back, nor when he turns towards me to see what is going on. He poens them eventually but it usually takes a long time and sometimes I need to gently wipe his face down with a warm towel. Is there something wrong with him or is he just attempting to ignore me?

That is not normal. Can you post pictures and I would high recommend getting him back into the vet. Is he eating? What is your temps? Humidity?
