Pus oozed out from the swollen conjunctiva. The whole left eye was badly infected. How to resolve this problem? Cutting up the abscess would be a calculated risk as the hamster might get blinded. Conservative treatment with eye drops and nursing needed 23 days. The hamster went home to a delighted little girl.
