Did something bite Cash back?

My poor boy has a bloody eye! it looks all raw on the skin under his eye. There is no fur left , and it sort of looks like there "might" be tiny little puncture wounds. When I washed it with warm water it did leave a little blood on the cloth. I didn't hear him tussle with anything, and I only noticed it because I was brushing him. It must have happened right when we got home from dinner and let them out. He doesn't seem at all in pain because I believe I would have seen it earler. I cleaned it up with warm water and a tiny bit of baby shampoo and then put a bit of antibacterial on it-- I am going to take him to the vet tomorrow, just to be safe. (part of me wants to take him to the emergency vet tonight, But I am pretty sure he is ok)

It's always something with that boy! do you think the baby rabbit fought back this time?

Eye lid scratched? Bloodshot eye?

How do those paw nails look?

Sounds like something attacked him (possibly in self defense..lol)
I would definitely take him to the vet though, as any wild animal could have rabies. Also, the vet can clean and wash out his wound to make sure no infection sets in.

I was actually bit on the forearm by a Wheaton Terrier a few weeks ago, One puncture wound but not much blood at all. I have a nice scar now though! ughhhh...

My niece's dog is fine....so don't want to scare you, but she has been bitten 3 different times by a snake in the face. She said you could see small puncture marks. She gave Benadryl and she was okay. She lives in Tx and talks like this happens a lot.

Poor Cash! Geez it sure is always something isn't it? Oh well, at least he doesn't seem bothered by it, but you might just get in to see the vet tomorrow and see.

Could it be from a stick? Murphy is always running with sticks in his mouth outside, reminds of hearing that you shouldn't run with scissors.

Hope he's ok!

I was thinking maybe a spider bit him and it's itching, so he has been scratching/rubbing it making it red and irritated.
Whatever it is, I hope you get it figured out and he feels better.
