Q: What causes excessive tearing
A: Staining can be caused by a variety of
- Clogged or Shallow Tear Ducts:
Studies indicate that 20-25% of small dogs and cats
are born with closed of shallow tear ducts. Tears
overflow because there the eyelid space is not deep
enough to contain them.
- Excessive Tearing: When the face
hair is wet from excessive tearing, it becomes a
breeding ground for bacteria and yeast infections
(AKA: Red Yeast, which causes deep reddish-brown
stains); Low grade bacteria infections may also
cause excessive tearing.
- Cutting Teeth: Cutting teeth may
cause changes in the head & mouth structure of
your pet, placing pressure on the tear ducts.
- Irritation & Allergies: Some
animals get hair or eyelashes into their eyes
causing irritation. Many breeds are
susceptible to allergies. Shampoos and other
chemicals can also irritate their eyes Some foods
cause allergic reactions; animals may also build an
allergic reaction over time to a type of food.
- Water: Water with high mineral
levels causes staining
- Food & Treats: Diet can play
a significant role in tearing. Many commercial
foods contain additives, preservatives and food
coloring. This could lead to staining.
- Fleas: Fleas survive in moisture,
which they get from the eye or moth area. This could
cause irritation and in addition red stains left
behind may be from flea feces. These are
just a few reasons. There are MANY more!!
