    Tear Stains!

    How do you all keep that yucky rusty colour from staining your pooches faces?
    Do you have anything that you find works well to remove the red staining?

    Share your tips please

    I use malacetic otic ultra... But only to treat stains and bacteria. Otherwise if no staining I use just plain malacetic otic or witch hazel for cleaning every few days.

    My sister has a light colored dog and she uses a product called angel eyes. She has nothing but good stuff to say about it.

    Re: Tear Stains!

    I've been wondering this also. My honey pied puppy has tear stains, but I'm scared to use Angel Eyes since I've been told it's actually antibiotics and I don't want to disrupt her system. I've been wiping the stains down every day with an all-natural baby wipe and then putting Aveeno diaper rash cream on them and it seems to help. Desitin supposedly works better but is really stinky. I've also been putting a tiny bit of apple cider vinegar in her water as I've been told that the staining can be caused by a PH imbalance or something like that. This is all kind of a big pain in the butt, so I'd love to hear any simpler suggestions!

    Angel Eyes is not sold here in the UK as it has antibiotics in it... My mum ordered it from America but stopped using it once I told her about the antibiotics.

    Re: Tear Stains!

    Sorry, I should have been more specific. My sister used the all natural one that does not contain any tylosin.

    Re: Tear Stains!

    I stopped giving Norm tap water and started giving him filtered water that worked. I was using witch hazel daily but since I switched to filtered water I have not had to use it at all.

    Yes filtered water is very helpful too!

    Another thing that can cause tear stains is food, what kind of food do you feed?

    Re: Tear Stains!

    Just googled the wipes and ordered some for Winston, just a quick question do you use the wipe then dry the area with paper towel? I've bought some for Winstons face and his paws.
