I've noticed lately that Muskrat (my adopted stray that lives outside my deck) has been tearing up in the left eye a lot, and it's not clear but brownish color. I know that sometimes clear tears dry brown and can stain, but I just wiped her tears off as they were coming down and it's definitely brown! I'm kind of concerned. She seems to be fine though and it's only in her left eye. I pried opened the eye and didn't see any redness. I want to take her to the vet but the last time I took her to see my vet to get her fixed, she freaked out and I was told she was very fiesty. I don't know how she will react if the vet checks her out. It seems that she only feels safe with me. Whenever she sees other neighbers come home, she'll run and hide untill they are all gone. I just hope she's alright. I've been wiping her white nose with wet papertowel and noticed that some days there are less stain than others... so I don't know what could be causing this problem. If it's an allergy, wouldn't it be in both eyes and not just one? Any ideas? Thanks!
