I am not big on second guessing veterinarians. But, what I will say is that if I didn't have 100% confidence in my vet, meaning that if I didn't TRUST them 100%, I personally would find another vet. That doesn't mean I expect them to have magical powers or be right 100% of the time, they're human. BUT, I want to know that they listen to me, and that they are competent. Having a bitch come in season after she was spayed? I would have a hard time trusting after that.
hoping for the best for your girl-
A watering eye can be a sign of an abcess in the roots. I would opt for a dental x-ray. Because people don't want to pay for them (at least here in the US), if you are not in a big town, you will have to travel and its not cheap. For me, my Cassi has one dying and is showing no symptoms so we just watch it and monitor her. But the eye-watering is one of the symptoms of an infection because of a dying tooth, yes it is. I would be really considering it hard especially since it is on the same side as the tooth. I would let it go for a little while and see how constant a problem it is if there is a possiblity it is an allergy. I think its crazy our canines don't get dental x-rays (at least in the smaller practices) as routine, ESPECIALLY if there is a tooth dying.
