Hello, my name is***** and I will help you. I do have a few questions:

Is your dog still sneezing? Both nostrils affected?

Is the discharge from the eye watery and clear or cloudy and yellow or green?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
There is no discharge from either nostril and only excess tearing and red tissues inside his eye. The eye is half closed most times
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Oh he would sneeze before his eye weeps. I thought it might be the kibble l have given him, bit he has had this kibble before.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The tears are clear.

Hello, it's been almost a day since I last emailed you.

Thanks for the info. Is the eye any better?

Still sneezing?

If the eye is still watering try lifting the upper lid, pull it towards you and see if there is anything in there. Like a small piece of grass or lint.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 9 months ago.

If Kobi still has the eye problem please take him to your vet for an eye exam.

Tears can drain into the nasal cavity. Similar to your nose running when you cry or have an allergy with runny eyes.

So an eye problem can cause sneezing.

Hope that this has helped.

If you have any more questions I will be happy to help you.

We must be in very different time zones which explains to lag time in this dialog. I am in Hawaii.
