However, now he has some kind of greenish stuff caked on there and I can´t get it off with a wet paper towel unless perhaps I scrubbed the area. He shakes his head so violently when I try to clean it that I wonder if it´s painful. The crusty stuff almost looks like wet, broken-down pellets dried on his eye, it´s kind of dark-greenish and grainy. Think it´s something to worry about? I´m going to hold him and hold a warm wet washcloth to his eye area to see if I can soften up the gunk, but he´s not going to appreciate it.
I can tell he´s going to need baths more often than my other pigs. Poor dude is a very furry Peruvian, and he´s always falling over and getting poops mashed into his hair and feet. I almost wondered if he had a squished poop on his foot and used that foot to clean that eye socket and ended up smearing poop all over it and that´s what´s dried on.
