I picked Einstein up and saw this:

There's nothing I can see wrong with his eye on basic examination. I guess it could be peaches stuck to his face or something. He's sitting in the kitchen all hunched-up, but usually they have naptime instead of floortime right now so he might just be tired.

Edit: Salana's post finally showed up.

Oh, my goodness. So there is something under his eye, but it doesn't look like his own blood or anything? No injury that you can see?

If it doesn't look like an injury, I suppose I would try to clean it with a damp washcloth.

It's yellowish-orange. The thing is, there's that bit of crusty at the corner of his eye, and peaches would not get there in the normal course of peachypellet-eating.

Hard to make out. To me it almost looks like an injury -- I think photos aren't always clear to us (you obviously can see it better and can give a better written description).

Oh my poor baby! What happened to him? It looks like a scratch or something. Was it bleeding? Did one of the girls bite him or did Jackie bite him panic?

So, how is that area beneath Einstein's eye? Was it an injury? Or, was it just the result of high-flying peaches?

He has conjunctivitis which is giving him a pea-eye-looking bulge. Still not sure about the yellow stuff, which might well have been flying peaches.

He had a tooth trim under anesthesia. There was an ulcer in his mouth, and while swabbing it, they got out a bunch of hay that had apparently been poking him. He's on Bactrim and he has to have his chlorhexidine gluconate mouthwash. (how terrible!!)

YOUR widdle man?

I have to take a bath and go to bed so maybe I'll take pictures tomorrow. I'm about to give him his mouthwash, which is naturally horrible and torturous.

Glad to hear Einy is doing OK - he's a truly inspirational pig!

I would like to see more pictures too, especially of his cute lips.

Peaches aside, I'm always amazed how CLEAN and dazzling white he looks! Or is it just Photoshop trickery? ;·)

I think my flash is a bit overpowered on white guinea pigs. He actually needs a bath at some point, as his cheeks are a little dingy.

Einstein went to the vet a week and a half ago and had his tooth trimmed, plus he had a huge honkin' mouth ulcer. He was put on Bactrim and Baytril for it. Last night he had a gigantic lump in his cheek. Is it possible for a cheek ulcer to abscess?

I would imagine that is possible. Poor Einey! Is he headed in to the vet today?

Hopefully. I'm not sure how I'm going to manage getting a ride, and I have very little money until Friday. I called the East Brunswick vet, but Dr. Belli's in surgery right now and couldn't see Einy until 4pm.

That's how abscesses start.

East Brunswick? Whereabouts do you live now?
