    My 3 year old bluey appears to be blind.
    Her eyes are most of the time closed.
    They always seem to bubble and water.
    She was outside but is now in an enclosure where she is trying to climb up the walls?

    What is this sickness and is there a cure.

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Are you saying she is blind or just that she closes her eyes all the time? If the latter it is probably because she is sick. When you say "bubble and water" what do you mean? Is it coming from her nose and mouth? If so it could be a respiratory infection.

    Sounds like an eye infection. A vet will be able to help with treatment

    Are you using a UV globe?

    The bubbles are appearing from the corner of her eye.
    I am using a uv+heat lamp in her indoor enclosure.
    She has scratches on her from scraping herself against some of the hides in her outdoor enclosure.
    She just seems that she cannot see properly

    Blueys will get watery/bubbly eyes when they are getting the start of a RI. I would be getting to a vet ASAP. Might need antibiotics. Once RI sets in it can cause death within days if not managed properly.
