Thursday night, Pappy's eyes were a bit red and gooey, and Friday morning he woke up with one glued shut. We got it opened up with a warm wet cloth. Being new owners, we panicked and made frantic calls to the vet. Pappy was mighty pathetic on leaving him at the vet. On returning for him, his mom thought she was hearing a bird chirping from the back-- but this was the non-stop whimpering of our otherwise stoic boy on hearing her voice in front. He went home with a armload of pills and potions, and the vet has a nice contribution to her retirement. Pappy immediately seemed 100% improved, but once you start those antibiotics you need to finish them up-- preferably with peanut butter.
