      eye waters 80 percent of the time

      I there I don't know what age some ppl clarify a senior lab. my oldest is 8 years and I have been noticing her right eye waters a lot and she blinks it a lot more then the other eye. I have looked to see if there is an eyelash that is bugging her but I cant see anything but I have notices there is a small something that has grown off the top of her eye just under her top lashes and that might be irritating her eye. I guess the vet is the next visit.

      Probably wouldn't hurt to have bet look at it especially with her being a bit older ( and not a senior at 8-- just getting going in their prime for a lab!!!) . Maybe it is scratched. I would think if it is only one eye there is definitely some type of irritation occurring. Hope she is ok.

      Definitely not normal. Could be something in the eye or the tear ducts. I'd have it checked.

      I'd have the vet look at that lump regardless of whether or not it's the cause for the watering (and, yes, diagnose the watering, too...not normal).

      Best thoughts that it's a benign lump and the actual cause for the watering...if so, removal should fix that.

      It could be a scratched cornea. The squinting is because she is most likely in pain. The vet can do an eye die test to see a scratch. Make sure they do not prescribe any eye meds with any steroid in it if the cornea is scratched. If they are not sure then take her to an ophthalmologist.

      Our Nikki has a meibomian cyst on her eyelid which causes periodic irritation like what you've described. They aren't recommending removal but I have an eye ointment on hand if it becomes a problem.
