    Hoglet runt eye oozing/crusting help!!

    Peeko had 3 lovely babies, they just started to open their eyes this week, all except for only one of the runts eyes. It was crusting for a day, then started oozing tonight and Im starting to get concerned. I really cant transport my mama with her 3 babies to the vet either as she got super stressed with the first cage and nest box cleaning today.. Ive been using a Q-tip with warm water to wipe away the oozing and crusting and changed the bedding from aspen shavings to a fleece liner, any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    Also, the hoglets are 4 weeks old in about 5 hours if that makes a difference.

    I would talk to your vet and see if they can get you an antibiotic cream without seeing the baby. A hedgehog knowledgeable vet should understand the situation. If you need to actually go to the vet, I would just bring that one baby if the others are fine.
