I can only assume this girl has a respiratory infection, after what seemed like never ending days over 40 degrees we have just had a wet and windy spell as they all moult. She has been eating well and this only started today. She has a runny nose and this eye looks awful. After dark I washed both sides of her face with saline and liberally applied Tricin ointment. I cannot organise a vet visit until Monday afternoon at the earliest so any advice would be wonderful.

There is not much you can do. Isolate her, encourage her to eat and drink (vitamins if you have them). Keep up the saline flush, avoid transferring from bad to good eye. If it is viral it will run it's course. An infection will need antibiotics from the vet.
