Clean with warm water washcloth and apply triple antibiotic ophthalmic ointment. If you don't have ointment, flax seed oil or cod liver oils ill often work wonders. Apply 2-3 times a day making sure the eyes are clean prior to application. Hope it isn't respiratory disease as you may need further systemic antibiotics as well. Good luck!

You would either have it from a vet it human doctor as it is by Rx. But if you don't have any, then the other options often do wonders. Anything with Omega FA will be helpful

Actually that's a pretty good pic. Looks like local irritation to the tissue around the eye. Eye is open so likely globe/ eyeball itself is not affected. Sometimes it can be from insect bite (spider, bee). If you want to pursue vet care eyes are not that different between species. Or you could also try benedryl topical ointment. DO NOT get it IN the eye but apply with Q tip to affected area around the eye. Or Hydrocortisone cream/ointment could also be used. That's OTC and you may have some in your medicine cabinet already.
