Hello Samantha,

My name is***** and I will help you.

Is Riley a white or light colored dog?

I'm going to ask you more questions so please stay online so we can talk.

I'm not a fast typer so please bear with me.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 year ago.

Tears have a reddish brown substance in them that can stain the hair at the inside corners of the eye in a white or light colored dog. It is unsightly and you can get something for that from a dog groomer.

However, the eyes should not be tearing all the time.

I want you to gently pull the lower eyelid down on both eyes. Is the left eye redder that the right?

Does your new 5 wk old puppy have any eye problems?

Is Riley able to open the left eye completely? Or is she squinting?
