Default Swollen Eye

Today as I was giving Meatloaf a bath, I noticed his one eye was swollen. It isn’t red or oozing, but it seems like he’s not even blinking with that eye. He doesn’t seem like he’s in pain, but I want to make this better before it gets worse and I’m currently unable to get to the vet. Any suggestions? I have not changed his shampoo and he sleeps on fleece bedding, which I generally change/clean once a week. Thanks in advance!

I’ve attached some pictures. They’re not the best, but he doesn’t like to stay put! 🙂

The eye looks very swollen and the side of his face to. Some way he really needs to see a vet and get checked out. There are so may things that could be causing this that it is impossible to tell from pictures. You really would not want his eye to pop out and him to lose the use of it. They are very good at hiding pain,but with that much swelling it has to hurt like crazy.
