I was given a Chi when I was 8-yr-old and he lived until I was in high school, but his death traumatized me as my parents took him away before I could see him. I spent many years feeling his loss. I swore I'd never have another Chi. Well, I'm now 66-yrs-old and live with a beautiful female Chi named Chica. She came to me when she was 1-1/2 and she's now 4-1/2. She is a fawn-colored deer head and has light ginger eyes and nose. For the past 2 years she has had constant watery eyes and even though the vet checked her out (no obvious infections, no inverted eyelashes, no improvement with antibiotic eye drops), her eyes seem to water more and more each day. The stains run from the eyes clear down to her top lip on her muzzle. In desperation yesterday, I tried some dexamethasone drops (mine) and the watering stopped. I've done this for two days now, but am afraid to continue on my own. I'm not particularly happy with my vet, as he hasn't helped her, but am unsure about medicating her myself. Also, I'm wondering if Benedry would help. Has anyone out there had similar problems?
