Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Good evening, JACustomer.

Given Asia's history of kidney disease and hyperthyroidism, there's very little that we can offer for home care. It would be advisable to talk to your vet about medication which may help, such as antihistamine therapy. The vast majority of those we'd recommend using OTC must be used cautiously in individuals with a pre-existing medical history of organ and thyroid dysfunction.

With this in mind, if you wish to try something at home, antihistamines may help with the leaking eyes. You can find dosing info here:
