    Ok, dumb question, but where can you buy witch hazel?

    Also, Leo has the rust colored tear stains, but no other issue with his face than that, can I use witch hazel to clean the stain, or will it take the Malacetic?

    Re: Tear Stains!

    You can buy witch hazel at pretty much any grocery store or pharmacy. I usually find it near the first aid aisle by peroxide.

    I used to have an English bulldog who would get bad tear stains. It took awhile but I used baby shampoo and peroxide alternating (just used a baby wipe to gently scrub the folds) and after a couple weeks the stains got lighter and were gone for the most part.

    Darn tear stains...the bane of most bulldog owners!!!

    Re: Tear Stains!

    When we first got Ollie he had bad tear stains and his face smelled AWEFUL in those folds. Once we switched him to a grain free food we have not had the smell anymore. I use aloe baby wipes a couple times a week to clean the folds and then I DRY them right after. The drying part is really important.

    Luckily Leo only has the stains, no smell associated with it. He is on grain free and raw food. I'm just wondering what will take the stain color away from his white fur.

    Sorry I missed this post. My sister got it from her local pet store.

    Have you been able to get rid of Leo's tear stains? I just noticed Jax has them. Is the witch hazel to keep them away or does it get rid of them?

    @Cbrugs unfortunately, I have not tried to get rid of them with anything yet. I just wash his face every morning to keep them form getting worse and to keep his little face smelling nice. I wipe his folds with a wet/damp washcloth. They have not gotten any worse, but no better either. Hopefully, after the holidays and when things aren't so crazy around here I can do some research and see what works for him.

    Re: Tear Stains!

    Louie has them and I just want to know how do you get them to stay still long enough to wash their folds? He moves and tries to bite the cloth. I can't get him to stay still!!!

    I have to have my BF hold him and then I grab his face and go to town! He definitely does not like it though.
