New hedgehog owner seeking advice
About a day or so after i got my hedgehog his eye closed and it doesn't seem like he can open it on his own. Its not red and he doesn't seem to be bothered by it but its been closed for almost a week now. I asked the person I bought him from for help and she said to soak it the best I could and let him open it on his own. My mom and me are really worried and aren't sure what else we can do for him.

Can you post a picture of his eyes? If it doesn't open you will need to take him to the vet. I'm surprised they sold him with that problem.

His eye closed two days after we got him. My computer won't let me put a picture in this reply. is there another way for me to get it to you?

i wasn't logged in that's why. this is the best we could do.

He could have something in his eye, have an infection or an injury to his eye. He really should be seen by a vet.

thank you we'll make sure to take him as soon as we can

He should be seen as soon as possible to prevent any possible permanent damage to the eye in case it is an injury or infection.
