My pit always seems to have sleep crust in her eyes outside of the corner of her eye near the lacrimal sac. is this an issue?

You should ask your vet. They can check for entropian/ectropian and other issues that may be cause for concern. :)

Some foods seem to cause more eye boogies than others. You might want to try a different food, see if that helps.
