2934. Better to put the hamster to sleep since pus flowed from the right eye?

Feb 14, 2016
The last case in this dark clouded sky evening at 4.15 pm was a hamster with both eyelids glued tightly. Liquid pus oozed out from the right eye, as if a dam had ruptured. The young man saw it and asked whether it is better to euthanize this hamster.

"I need to examine the eyes first," I told him that the left eye was still open partly. Examination of the right eye showed sticky pus which I removed with a wet cotton bud. The eyeballs were intact. "How long had the hamster not been eating?" I asked. "The lower front teeth have overgrown. I will clip them shorter"

"Don't know," the man said.        
The hamster is an in-patient on this Valentine's Day. Will see how she goes.
