Can dogs weep like humans do? You probably know that dogs also have feelings because you have seen your four-legged friend with glassy or wet eyes before. But do dogs have tear ducts at all? Let’s find out!
While dogs can feel sadness and sorrow, they cannot cry in the same way as humans do. In other words, sad feelings in dogs do not cause tears to flow.
However, tearing eyes can be caused by many causes. Allergies in dogs, infections, conjunctivitis or blocked tear ducts are common causes when dogs “cry”.
Do dogs have tear glands?
The answer is yes. Practically every animal with eyes has tear ducts. The dog’s eyes excrete tears and have the same practical functions as in humans.
On the one hand, they serve to keep the eye moist. On the other hand, they serve as a natural protective mechanism to flush foreign bodies out of the eye.
