I let him out to go relieve himself and he came back with a scratch by his eye. How do I take care of it?

I would clean it with a bit of peroxide and put a little triple antibiotic ointment on it. It should heal in a few days. If it isn't getting better in a day or two or if it gets worse, then you need to have your vet check it.

Be very very careful not to get peroxide in his eye. It can blind him. But yes clean it out and put some ointment on it. Its hard to tell in the picture if it needs stitches or if it will just scab over. I guess just use your gut. If its not very deep i would just keep it clean and let it heal on its own
