Watery Eye?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I noticed that the past few days, Bayley's left eye has been watering off and on. It doesn't seem to be red, puffy, or infected tho. It just will water really bad for bit, and then the next day it will be okay. It was happening last night, right before we took them outside to play for awhile, and while we were outside, it stopped watering and cleared right up!

I wipe it out when its watering to keep it from getting crusty or anything- but is there anything I can do for him? Or maybe it could be allergies? I'm just not quite sure I guess.... any info would be appreciated

It might be a blocked tear duct. As long as his nose isn't running, and the eye watering isn't cloudy, it should be ok - I would make a vet call to ask them just in case.

Nope, no runny nose, and its not cloudy - just like .... water!
It seems to happen more so when he just wakes up from sleeping.

Bella started getting watery eyes when we moved here to KY which is known for allergies...and the vet did say it was definitely allergies...nothing we could do for it though. As long as he's not closing his eye like he has a scratch on it or something, because then he needs to go to the vet so they can test it and give you eye medicine...we have had that happen many times here with Soph, Sev and Bella Good luck.

Dory & Molly both have the same thing. Both in their left eyes. There's nothing to be done about it.

If you are worried....look at the white of his eye. If it's red, there's an infection going on. If it's white...he should be OK.

I read a thread awhile back about tap water might be the cause. Since then I have been using Britta water and it really helps. The other odd suggestion would be another cats saliva. I noticed when Benson cleans Molly's face her eye runs until I flush it with drops. Weird but it happens everytime.

We use a Britta water pitcher that filters the water... its the only water they drink...

We don't use plastic, and I wash out their bowls every other day in the dishwasher.... I hope its nothing, I don't like to see him hurting!

Pixel's does that. i've had a vet tell me her tear duct was blocked, & that the next time she needed surgery/anesthesia, they could unblock it... she hasn't needed any since i was told that. i also think it may have something to do with her herpes, since it's been better since i started putting the lysine in their water. but some days it just waters worse than others. for her, it's her right eye that does it.
