This week’s curated article is very specific but important to learn if you have any animals. As anyone with eyeballs knows, eyes are very sensitive and can cause a lot of pain if you get something stuck in them.
Worse, if a piece of contaminated dirt gets stuck under the eyelid, it can cause an infection and even blindness if left untreated.
Since your animals spend most of their time outdoors, the chances of one of them getting something stuck in their eye at some point are very high, so you should keep an eye on them (see what I did there?) and be prepared to treat them when it happens.
