Many times they can have ocular discharge from time to time. Often this comes from irritation or debris that may Have entered the eye. At times when there is excessive redness and swelling then that can be more cause for concern. However when the eyes are not so severe, the following can be a good place to begin with. Here is some information for your review on eyes. For ocular issues there is a topical eye ointment called Terramycin, which contains oxytetracycline. This is over the counter and can be found online or at some pet stores. It can be used 3 times a day to assist with the eyes. Additionally, flushing the eye with Vetericyn Eye flush, if this is not available you can look for human flush. This can help to remove buildup of debris and irritants that may accumulate on the eyes. It is most helpful to keep the eyes clean and free of material buildup.

Hi
No changes in eating or going to the bathroom that I am aware of. He is only 2 weeks old so mom is stimulating him.
Let me send you some pics. Their eyes just started opening and his right eye is definitely getting red and swollen and he is getting a buildup

When there is yellow discharge a concern is that of a potential respiratory infection. If this is getting worse then being seen at your clinic for potential antibiotics may be most beneficial before it worsens.
