Merlin's eye infection


New Member
So After this week's vet visit with Merlin (was in for a potential eye infection) I noticed his poop had return to normal but he had begun to rub his left eye on branches in his enclosure. I called my vet immediately and she prescribed Gentamicin Sulfate eye drops. I've been giving him 2 drops a day directly in his eye (which is very very very hard to do =[) for 4 days now. I think I am seeing an improvement, but I'm not sure. I haven't seen him itching it but he still isn't opening his eye all day. He'll use it if hes threatened or navigating difficult terrain, but if hes just moving around a bit or sitting on a branch he keeps it closed. I also noticed him asleep at 6pm last night which is about 3 hours early for him (his timer is set for 8am-9pm). His colors have remained good and he is very active during the most of the day. What do you think? Is he going to be ok?
