Yes, I forgot about it, but I used Pawier a couple of years ago for one of my dogs. It did seem to make a difference. I put the drops on her food, if I recall correctly. I think we went through three bottles before I quit, and I don't even remember why I stopped.
Even eyes that water a lot should drain through the normal channels, which would take it down through the nose. If he has excessive runny eyes, which I do see quite a bit in some lines of Havanese, it could be checked out farther.
Have you considered having his tear ducts flushed? He may have one or two blocked ducts. Unfortunately, it has to be done under anesthesia because the tear duct is so small and the dogs are so wiggly.
I had a black dog that had excessive tearing. Because his face was black, it didn't have the signs of staining, but it was wet all of the time. My vet did a simple test where they touch the eye with a florescent stain and then wait a minute and turn off the lights to track the stain. One one eye it was going down through the nasal area like it is supposed to do, but on the other eye, it was draining outside the eye. She told me I could pursue a tear duct flushing or wait and see if things changed because he was so young. Sure enough, his situation fixed itself as he grew. Your little guy doesn't look quite as young though.
