Remmy has had a watery eye for a little while. She had antibiotic drops but it didn't clear it up. It does not occur all the time, but every few days. If she had an allergy I would assume it would affect both eyes.
Remmy also has had a dead canine tooth for about 3 years (on the same side as the watery eye). This hasn't appeared to cause her any problem and the vet previously advised to leave it alone. She has no problem eating and there is no swelling on her face.
I took her back to the vets today about her eye and saw the vet that I don't like very much. I never feel he gives you much time to discuss anything.
He was the vet we dealt with when Remmy had to be re-spayed following coming into season when she had been spayed by them previously.
We felt he didn't handle it very well at all and was very offhand with us. Lacking in good communication skills I think!!
I mentioned the tooth to him today as I wondered if there could be any connection between the watery eye and the canine tooth. He thought it could be possible (although it was my suggestion initially and not his). He said to book her in to have it removed under GA. He didn't suggest an X-ray either.
I don't want to needlessly put her through a GA if the tooth is not causing the eye problem. I wondered if anyone had any experience of this or had heard it could happen. I have googled but have not found anything relevant. Should I get a second opinion?
