my puppy has blocked tear ducts but no infection, should they be treated?
Blocked tear ducts lead to mostly just a cosmetic problem, with tear staining on the fur of the face. As long as there's no irritation of the eye, and no mucus/pus discharge, I wouldn't be concerned. Flushing the ducts is possible, but usually requires a sedative.
