1423. Subconjunctival abscesses in the left eye of a Roborovski

2 weeks ago, this Roborovski came for hair loss and was treated by a vet from Toa Payoh Vets. Some hair clipped and Revolution drop was applied. Medication given.

"The vet says that the hairs would grow back after 10 days," the young man told me. "But there is more hair loss."  

Subconjunctival abscess do exist in Singapore hamsters and are quite rare. In this case, a close inspection is needed as they can be overlooked since the eyelid is so small.
