Goopy Eyes

One of my miniature's has a non-stop goopy eyes. No nasal discharge and is in good weight. UTD on shots and aside from goopy eyes is as healthy as a well.. You know ;)

She goes in to have her chompers taken care of this month, so she will be seeing a vet shortly. Was just wondering if it entailed anything. Fiona has a non-stop running tear-duct (which is flushed routinely) but gunky eyes are another story I believe.

With my horses, exceptionally goopy eyes means one of two things:

1. Metabolic issues

2. Allergies; in my horse's case environmental but don't rule out food intolerance.

Both of which mean weak immune systems

Ugh... I was afraid it was something more serious when I realized it hadn't stopped over the last month or so. :(
