    There could be dirt or debris in the eye. I recommend flushing the eye with saline solution. If necessary, put some terramycin eye ointment in the eye in case there's a bacterial problem. If it continues watering after the ointment treatment, look for other environmental causes; smoke, pollen, lawn pesticides, ammonia in their house etc...
    Then if there are no causes, you would most likely be dealing with a respiratory issue: Maybe MG.

    Thanks for your help. I will get some ointment and get started. Every one else looks good so hopefully it is just debris in her eye.
