Glad to hear everything is looking good now. I have had a little trouble with eye caps on my black and honduran milks, not lately, but at first. I started raising the humidity and that of course helped solve the problem. But i used to soak them in warm water and then "dry" them well with a towel. I also had to do the Q-tip method a few times though.
Good luck with him.
Have a good one,
Gregg F.

:Ok, I decided to give it a try with the q-tips. I put some room temp water in a sink, and I dipped his head in and took a q-tip and dipped that also. I then ever so gently started rubbing the eye along the edges and after about 5 minuted of doing this on anf off (to not stress him out too much, I was able to slide both of them off. He was acutally well behaved, as soon as I put the q-tip to the eye, he stopped squirming and just laid there very still. Phew! That's a relief, now off to get him a nice big fuzzy as a reward for his bravery!
