Hello Keith,

Thank you for writing. My apologies for the delay. I receive many e-mail questions, and having a full house myself, it takes me some time to answer all of them.

I have a couple questions I need you to answer in order to be of some help to you.

Is the tearing from one eye or both?

Is it heavy, constant tearing?

How long has the tearing been going on?

Is tearing clear or colored?

Are the eyes red?

Is your Labrador Retriever pawing or scratching his eyes?

Are the pupils dilated?

Does he squint his eyes?

Any ear problems?

What is your Labrador Retrievers name?

With all the email questions I receive, I always ask a favor of the person writing. If you have any photos of your Labrador Retriever, that you could email me, I would love to post them to the Labrador Retriever Pictures blog. You DO NOT have to send a photo to receive an answer to your question.

Please answer these questions at your earliest convenience, and I will have an answer for you right away.

Talk to you soon,
