Pop eye?



I noticed this when I returned home today. He didn't have it yesterday and it's just on his right eye. Is this pop eye? I'm so worried!

well i cant tell from the pictures, but i would go on ahead and add 2 tbs of epsom salt per gallon... my boy had pop eye so bad his eye was bleeing,in the end he lost it , but the epsom slat certainly made the swelling go down in just one night...

Can you fill this out? I agree with the Epsom Salt treatment. It won't hurt but it's 1-3 TEASPOONS not tablespoons! That's a lot! It won't hurt to do this treatment just in case. Do daily 100% changes and good luck.

Nah, it's OK. It's just that tablespoons are pretty big, don't you think?
