James Cagney has been keeping his left eye shut a lot, he seemed to have a piece of skin stuck there at his last shed (about 1.5 weeks ago).

I am dropping him off at the exotic vet's office tomorrow AM & they will look at him.

any ideas for relief for him? he does that creepy thing where he sucks ghis eye in & rolls it around.
I took him to the vet yesterday & they flushed his eye (such a tiny eye) & he is home with eye drops for 7 days. They said he was so good & just let them do whatever they needed, but of course they fell in love with him!
The same thing happened with my well.
I used a little humid cotton and I used carefully in his eye, he began to scratch his eye on cotton and 3 minutes later came a little skin
