Egg a day/ tearing eyes

4.5 months, started the egg yoke as advised, likes the whites so she gets whole egg. Gave her 1/4, then 1/2 now she gets the whole egg. Her face is staying wet from tearing. Could this be related, is this a sign of teething or something I should be worried about?

Gucci still has tearing. I was wondering the same thing. It is *clear*, but I still have to wash her face every few days with baby soap. I usually do it the same time I give her a butt bath! lol

I have no answer, but I wanted to jump in on this thread and see what everyone else has to say on the matter.

Tripp tears but it doesnt look clear unless its just the color of his hair being wet, but i dont think so. It doesnt seem to have an odor.

My 10.5 week old puppy gets half an egg yolk every day. He's been getting it for awhile, as the breeder fed him egg yolk as well (she didn't give him the whites and told me not to as well - said it might give him diarrhea). I haven't seen any tearing. He's black, so I might not notice as much as I would if he had a light colored face.

I think Gucci's tears have a funny smell. Not an uber obnoxious smell, but definately when she has tears on her face it smells different than the rest of her. Mild scent, but noticeable.

Oh, and I should add, I don't feed her egg that often. In fact, she went about 3-4 weeks recently without one and she still teared. I've wondered if she has allergies? Sometimes she sneezes too...but where we live in Virginia, there is practically a fog of pollen!

I think Tripps little hairs around the eyes irritate him. He wont let me near his eyes to i can trim them. He squirms all over when i try so what i do cut is very uneven.

I do any trimming of hair or nails RIGHT after I get her out of the bath and she's still in towel before blow drying. She won't fight me at ALL then. But any other time, forget it!

I'm trying to let the hair around her eyes grow out. I had to cut some off because of tear staining when she was wee little.

Also, Shannon.....you can really trim it nicely with "thread cutters" from the fabric store, they have very short blades, like 3/4 an inch or so and are about $8. Easier to handle when cutting near the eyes too.

in a puppy, often the tearing is from teething. There can be a world of possibilities if they tear when they are older.

Normally, Smarty's face is dry. Her hair is now growing over her eyes and that could be the problem, I guess, but I don't think so. She will rub her face on the sofa, leather thank goodness, but not constantly.
