Can Dogs Cry? What Do Dogs’ Tears Mean?
At some point, you may notice your dog's watery eyes. It’s easy to assume that the dog is crying, but those tears are actually caused by something other than emotions.
Here are some common causes of tears in dogs:
When playing with other dogs or cats, running a paw brush in the area can be the cause of a scratched cornea. Besides tearing, a dog may paw at his eye, blink a lot, or have an inflamed eye area.
If the dog’s tears are yellow, mucusy, or bloody instead of clear, it may be a sign that your dog has an eye infection. Other symptoms could be a swollen or irritated eye area.
3. Blocked Tear Ducts
If a dog’s tear ducts get blocked, then tears may start flowing from your dog’s eyes. If it’s been going on for a while, your dog may develop skin irritation or have brown or reddish fur around their eyes.
Dogs can be allergic to a number of things, including dander, dust or pollen, etc. Allergies can cause a dog’s eyes to water.
So if your dog looks like he’s crying, there might be something wrong that you need to get checked out by a veterinarian.
