Unhappy PLEASE HELP! My hedge's eye is red and idk whats wrong!

I was recently on a long weekend for my birthday I left my hedgehog coco in my mothers care, today when i got back i took her out of her home for a bath and i noticed her eye was bleeding!
I wasnt sure if she had an infection or had scratched her eye ball, I clean her up around her eye and tried to remove most of what i could but it didnt seem to help some one please help I'm afriad she may be very ill or blind in that eye now i called a vet but the closest one that will see her is an hour away and they want 104 just to even touch her.

She needs to see a vet, ASAP. She may or may not lose the eye.

There is nothing you can do but get her to a vet ASAP, and emergency vet if necessary. Try to find one with rat, guinea pig, ferret, etc. small animal experience. It looks like she will need the eye removed.

Get her in today. If she has any chance of saving the eye it needs to be treated ASAP. These are one of those items that you don't wait, you just go.

Agreed.. this is one of those, pick her up, get in your car, and call the vet's office to alert them you have an emergent situation as you're on the way to their front door types of deals.

Yep, vet immediately. The longer you wait the less chance of saving the eye. Also, it is painful for her.
