Dottie, my 2 year old Boer doe, has had teary eyes for about a year. Both eyes. Just clear liquid- no mucus or pus or anything else. The eye is not infected not even irritated- it is not cloudy or swollen or anything I can see. She doesn't hold it closed in bright sun. The constant tears make the area where they fall raw and scabby if not treated. I usually just put some triple antibiotic ointment on the skin (not the eyes) and the skin heals in a few days. I have been doing this a couple of times per month for a year. I tried different feeders- her current one is on where she only gets her nose into it so it's not irritation from the feeder. Today I took her into the vets because someone said that it could just be a stray eyelash or two causing the problem but the vet looked at her very thoroughly and said that it couldn't be- beside not finding such a problem, Dotties eyebal is not the least scratched or inflamed. She said she thinks it's just that Dottie has deep set eyes and the moisture is held in by the folds of the skin around her eyes. To correct it, she would have to do surgery - a goatie eye lid lift. But she also said it might make it worse or not even really be the solution. I know horses can get blocked tear ducts- has anyone ever heard of such a thing with goats? Any suggestions?
