How to Treat Watery Eyes in Dogs at Home - SHOOBY Boutique

Watery eyes in dogs are a common problem that can have a number of causes. While it's normal for dogs to produce some tears to keep their eyes moist, excessive tearing can be a sign of an underlying issue. In this post, we'll explore some of the common causes of watery eyes in dogs and share some tips on how to manage the condition at home.

Causes of Watery Eyes in Dogs

  1. Allergies: Just like humans, dogs can be allergic to a variety of things, including pollen, dust, and certain types of food. When a dog's immune system reacts to an allergen, it can cause inflammation in the eyes and nasal passages, leading to watery eyes and other symptoms.

  2. Infections: Bacterial, viral, and fungal infections can all cause watery eyes in dogs. These infections can be caused by a variety of factors, including injuries to the eye, exposure to other infected animals, and weakened immune systems.

  3. Conjunctivitis: Also known as pink eye, conjunctivitis is a common condition in dogs that causes inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin membrane that covers the eye. This can lead to watery eyes, discharge, and redness.
