Eddie's eye is swollen and popping out so far that he can't blink. It's all dried and swollen and red and looks awful. I have no idea what happened, I came home from work and saw it. I gave him some children's ibuprofen. I can't get him to a vet until Monday. I'm sure his eye is ruined.

I don't know where you live. Is there any vets that might be on call or for an emergency? I was also wondering if you see any scratches or tears near the eye maybe indicating a fight. If not maybe you can take some drops of water to moisten the eye and possibly push gently to see if it will go back in. I know it sounds really gross, but if you can't see any nerves or tissue behind the eye it might go back in. I would be very careful and see if someone could help you. I am not a vet. I do know a lot of medical stuff, the best chance for eye to survive is in it's socket. I would try to get a hold of any vet that you can first. I'm sorry about your baby and I wish you the best of luck!
