Q. My golden was poked in the eye with fingernail and causing ulcer. Dye test shows the ulcer is healed, but his eye still weeps. What to do?
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. I guess I'd question whether the ulcer is truly healed at this point. Clearly the excessive tearing isn't normal. If you're in an area with a veterinary ophthalmologist I'd recommend you seek a second opinion. Ulcers can be difficult to heal, however if the fluoresein stain test is negative and there is still tearing there may be another problem going on.
