My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your pup has a runny eye. There are several possible causes of this-

-blocked tear duct

-eyelash pointing inwards instead of outwards (dystechia)

-foreign material stuck under the eyelid

-early KCS (dry eye)

-tumor on the eyelid.

-ulcer on the cornea

-pain in the eye like from glaucoma or cataracts

I would recommend having your vet check your pup's eye for all of these conditions. They can then prescribe the treatments needed.

Does this help? What other questions do you have?
