Wow! Never heard of that. It sure sounds symptomatic of something, though---especially since it is both eyes. I wonder if the tear ducts got blocked and infected and then ruptured. I have no idea if that is even possible. Good luck.

Maybe she had something get in her eyes and it is working its way down to drain through her nose? Years ago had this happen , Vet put a tube into the tear duct and forced a grass seed to travel and come out the nose. Was weird, never really thought that they drained like that LOL

Hmmmm...I have an idea....

CALL YOUR VET!!!

Infected eyes and/or tear ducts are NOT something to mess around with trying everyone's home remedies .

Dr. Pam..ouch...I do have a call into my Vet but was just curious if anyone had seen this before........and sorry, but for SOME things I will take a home remedy over a Rx because I think there are times when we medicate way too much...but that is just my humble little opinion..please no flames..but I did feel a little yelled at..
..course I am also a weeeee bit menepausal so could be mistaken
