Hi Everyone!

I just got home from work, and I noticed Motley's right eye looked ever so slightly irritated. It looks a little bit red/goopy, but nothing excessive, and she is also occasionally rubbing at it. The only thing I can think of is yesterday I washed her bedding (I use cloth) for the first time (using a free and gentle pod by tide, with no perfumes). Has anyone run into this issue? Monday will mark 2 weeks since I've adopted her, and this is my first time being a rat mommy. Should I give it a day or so and see if it clears up, or make a vet appointment? I've attached a picture of the eye, but it isnt great.

One of my boys had that, and daily cleans with chamomile tea and preservative-free saline solution really helped! But if it gets worse or persists for too long you should take her to the vet. :)
