Q. My female labra of about 41 days is having watery eyes...Is it normal or something is there to look after for this.

A. Watery eyes is not normal in puppies and can be a sign of irritation of the surface of the eye from getting dirt/dust stuck in them whilst exploring, occasionally a sign of a viral infection, an allergy or due to the eyelids growing in an abnormal angle and allowing the eyelashes to contact the surface of the eye. This can develop into ulceration of the eye and your vet should eb able to place small tacking sutures to redirect them if this is present
