Default Eye problem?

Beau is keeping his right eye closed this morning. My only idea is that he got something in it yesterday?

Ideas?

Misty does that every now and again, usually I give her a bath and a good face rinse and it helps quite a bit.

I also have some eye rinse that helps.

Double check that his whiskers aren't poking him in the eyeball or near his eye. I have two that occasionally need a whisker trim.

You can use some eye rinse on it, but if it continues like that, I'd have him to the vet sooner rather than later. If he has a scratch on his cornea, they can become pretty ugly pretty quickly.

I agree with elegy, if he doesn't open it soon, I wouldn't mess around with his eye.

Is it horrible that I went "OMG HE JUST GOT CUTER" when I saw the first pic?

Buddy, our Dachshund-mix did this last year. His eye was totally closed. Vet dropped some stuff in there and turned it green and you could see a big scratch on his cornea - don't know what it was from still, but he was opening his eye again that night after the vet took care of it and gave some meds. I wouldn't mess with eyes either!
