Mickey's right eye is terrible. He has a yellowish discharge covering the whole eye and it is also swollen. Poor baby I am so worried. What could it be?

He is eating and everything and not sneezing....

The vet told us to go after 12.

swollen with a discolored discharge -- it's certainly an infection of some sort. As to the exact cause/ treatment -- the vet should be able to tell you the correct treatment.

It could be a scratched eye or something like chlamydia.

I hope it's minor and easily treated. the vet is the where to go for this, definitely

This doesn't sound good, it's vet time asap. You may end up having to medicate Linguini too if it's something contagious.

Does he have an upper respiratory infection? Swollen eye sounds a lot like it! If it is though, URI's are "easy" to cure. Hope Linguini feels better soon!

Yikes. First Linguini now Mickey?! Sounds like your boys are both battling a bug. Hopefully the antibiotics and drops will clear things up quickly.

Sound like chlamydia or another type of infection, yellow usually points in the direction of infection. Hope all went well at the vet let us know.

I feel your pain. I'm waiting on a diagnosis from the vet for the same issues!
