Surgery for blocked tear ducts
My six year old Havanese had surgery last Feb. for his tear ducts. He always had excessive tearing but was controlled for some time with Angel Eyes and then switched to bottled water only which worked for a year or more. Then eye would get infected and the moisture turned his face so rusty red and the eye red and so I took him to Eye specialist here in OKC. Now he is still tearing and face is still very discolored, going back for check up next week. What I am seeking here is anyone who has been thru this for some advice. My Barney has also started within the same time period, choking and hacking like someone trying to clear their throat and yawns opening mouth like he is trying to clear ears. Have talked with Vet but I get nothing. Think he might have something blocking drainage in ears or such. Does this make any sense to anyone? I hate to see him like this, otherwise he seems to feel OK. Also. licks his nose a lot!
