I am interested to hear how your dog is doing? My dog was just recently diagnosed with dry eye and has zero tear production according to the Schirmer test. To me this is so unusual because she is a German shephard mix and everthing I read on this disease is usually on smaller dogs. It came out of no where. Her eyes were red one day and I called the vet - they suggested Benadryl because they thought it must be an allergy. After 3 days I saw no improvement and took her in and the saga started. It has been about a month since the diagnose and I had her re-tested. Still ZERO tears. They now suggested the surgery. I stumbled on to this site by doing research. I saw you posted your dog had ZERO production as well as thought I would check to see the progress thus far. Please let me know
