My small dog lost an eye about 2 and half weeks ago and since then the eye has been oozing puss at first and now cloudy liquid. She is on antibiotics all this time. The eye only oozes a couple times a day and then stops in about 10 seconds. I have to take her back to the vet tomorrow because I have been told she may need another operation to remove the tear duct as this maybe what is causing the oozing.
If she does need another surgery is it a minor surgery or will the whole eye need to be opened and resealed?
So my question is why does the eye only seep a couple of times a day and when I pat it dry it stops completely? Don't tear ducts produce tears all the time and would it not be seeping all the time? I really don't want her to have to go under again if it is not necessary.
It is tearing right in the corner of the eye. A few minutes after I pat it dry it looks like it completely heals over and stays dry for hours until she gets excited then it starts seeping again.
