Hi there,
No his eyes are still shut over, though you can see his eye movement almost behind the lids.... plus he sometimes paws them as though wanting to see. it is all very sad and frustrating as no one seems to know the answer.
The vet was giving him daily injections which I presume where antibiotics/ vitamins... for the two and half weeks and to a great cost....but this has had little effect.
Obviously since not being able to see his appetite has grown less and less... to almost nothing now...though he appears strong still and keen to get about.

he is kept indoors as cold here... in a large enclosure with very fine wood chipping... a hot spot and uv and adequate water for bathing. We have tried to up humidity/ bathe him for longer... but to no avail...????

Steph.
