Epiphora (excessive tearing)

Epiphora results in persistent wetness and often staining of the area below the eyes.  This is not only unsightly but may become irritating to your pet, since it creates an excellent bed for bacterial growth.

Causes include allergies, infections, foreign matter, abnormally located eyelashes and adjacent facial hair that rub against the eyeball, defects or diseases of the tear drainage system, birth defects of the eye.
