Albino Rat


I currently have a 2 year old albino pet rat. She is slightly overweight and I assume due to her age and lack of pigmentation that she is blind.

During the last week I have noticed what appears to be a very small amount of dried blood in the corner of her right eye, in the same place that a human tear duct would be.

Is this something that should be brought to the attention of a Veterinarian or would it possibly be safe to wait a few days and observe the eye?

Thank you very much for any responses.
