Just wondering if anyone has any experience of this. Have 4 female piggies, had last one for about 6 months, approx 12 month old. One of her eyes has gone milky white colour. What could cause this? Glaucoma? Infection? I'm guessing a vet is needed whatever the cause.
Prob just something in her eye - trip to the vets needed! A friend left her one without treatment and it turned into an ulcer, it was horrible she gave her to me as she "couldn't be bothered with it"......she is now not a close friend..... (and marmalade died of old age (almost 7) living as a queen with me )
One of my GPs I had as a child had a scratch on her eye. It healed up (we had her checked but this was in the 1980s , GPs were not high priority pets). Every now and again, her eye would go 'cloudy' were the scarring was then go back to normal. She didn't rub her eye, it didn't get weepy or crusty.
My little Abby boar that we had last year had one fatty eye - and yes that was always the one he got hay in. DD and I became deft at restrain the piggie, wipe his eye with saline gauze and Hey Presto, bit of hay once it was 1cm long He was never grateful
Millie Pig has recently cost a small fortune regarding an eye injury. There was no milkiness. Her eye was very sore looking, wet looking, slightly closed and red at the rim.
Millie had a big hole in her cornea probably caused by hay. The vet diagnosed it by putting some drops that showed up the hole green under a special light. It took a good 10 tens to heal completely. I can't remember if first check up was after 5 or 7 days but it wasn't fully healed and we had to take her for a third and final time.
My Old Boy went blind in his left eye in his last couple of months of life. The eye gradually went cloudy and then one day was completely milky looking. I think he probably had a tumour in his jaw , he had a lot of dental work in his last year and that caused his loss of sight.
