Could be his teeth. When Lace was teething her left eye would tear but the right didn't. Vet told me after she pulled the baby teeth that Lacey had a couple of baby teeth that were pushing up against the adult teeth. Said it proberly felt like a constant toothache. Lacey also ate much better. She is a little piggy now. Took her to the vet the other day and she said that Lacey could lose a little weight...take her off the puppy food. Have your vet check him out, could be an ear infection, or his teeth, or even some hair poking him in the eye. Good luck.

it could be related to the teething or can be the conformation of your pup..could have a blocked tear duct too....just wipe it everyday with a moist cloth and maybe after the teething is done it will stop

If it doesn't resolve after teething is over, I would see an ophthalmologist to rule out one of the many common eye problem in Maltese. Besides blocked tear ducts, some Maltese have a small bit of tissue covering the lower tear duct opening that doesn't open when their eyes open. If caught early, it can easily be fixed. Also, Maltese are prone to problems like distichiasis and entropion. This can be in one eye, especially distichiasis. Your regular vet may not see the fine lashes or subtle problem on a routine exam.
