Good Morning and welcome to Just answer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Yes, an Ultrasonic Collar will really help teach Theo to not run off. There are also invisible fences that are effective for this also. Use the collar and vwhen he retuirns, praise him and give him treats. I have personal experience with this and the collar was very effective and only needed to be used a couple times until Theo will get the idea. There is hope...if you have the time to work with him, he will do great.
I am not sure about the eye weeping but it may be that he has a minor infection in this area or that he is over producing tears from a defect in the tear ducts...this is not serious but may require treatment so Theo is more comfortable. Your vet will have to do a close inspection and testing to know for sure.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you
Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
Hello Dr Loretta
We have "lost" Theo for nearly 5 hours today so your reply has probably stopped us from giving up on him. We will invest in a collar and careful training and see how it goes. Many thanks indeed.
His eye seems fine. It seems to be a little split about half and inch below his tear duct in the skin under his eye?? Could it have been a cut that just has never healed over?
You are a bit encouragement and we will buy the Innotek Collar. Many thanks for your reassurance and help. It's much appreciated. The good news is, after his 5 hours running around, he was too exhausted to run off during his walk this afternoon!
Big thank you - especially from Theo!
Thank you so much, Leigh, for your kind rating. It is very much appreciated! Do not hesitate to contact me with any other concerns that you may have about Theo's issue.
We will do and thank you again.
