Default Does he need to go to the vet??

Do I need to take Rupert to the vet? Earlier today his eye was closed all the way and he wouldnít open it all, now itís open a bit, but itís very red around the skin, and irritated looking, and weeping a bit too. His brother Roodey has been trying to groom it (I assume? Or maybe he caused it) he sorta nibbles at the fur around it almost? Rupert himself has also been rubbing his cheek, right under his eye. I canít take him to the vet until tomorrow morning, and I donít want to if I donít have to obviously. Iíll attach pictures, one of when it was closed, and 2 from now.

Yes he needs to see a vet, it looks like he has an eye infection.

Dr thinks itís an eye infection, he is on eye drops 2 times a day for 10 days. And has a check up on Monday. His eye is very very swollen, so he is a bit concerned it could be a tumour or abscess behind his eye. Fingers crossed itís nothing serious.
