    Getting rid of tear-stains in white dogs?

    1/31/2007- This thread is from 2005! My grandma has since then discovered "Angels' Eyes" and it is wonderful!



    --------------------------

    One of my Memaw's Malteses has really bad tear stains. Out of all 3, she is the only one who has them. Her vet gave her some sort of stuff that was supposed to get rid of them but didn't. She was thinking of trying this:


    Does anyone know of anything that works, or if the previous gel works?

    Try Tums -- they work very well. We get lots of dogs in the shop that have tear stains and we always recommend Tums. One tum a day is good or a maltese, 1/2 fed in the morning and 1/2 fed at night.
    I've been BOO'd!

    Try peroxide on a Q-tip and clean it every day until the dark stain is gone.

    I belong to another board and this question comes up fairly often. There is a member on that board who has maltese and has shown them. Here is her reply to the question...

    1. See a veterinary ophthalmologist to rule out an eye condition causing excessive tearing. Your regular vet cannot see all of the subtle eye lid issues that can cause excessive staining. Solving the problem is the best way to end staining.

    2. Rule out other causes of excessive staining such as inhalent allergies.

    3. If it is determined to be due to the structure of the face rather than a problem:

    a. Try topical treatment. I like to clean the hair daily with Collyrium eye flush on a cotton ball. Another good cleaner is Absolutely Natural's Groom Aid sprayed on a cotton ball.

    b. Bleach the hair. Don't forget to condition well (not so much an issue with the shaved face).

    c. Try a short course of antibiotics under veterinary supervision. In an adult dog, 7-14 days of Tetracycline can be tried. A couple weeks of Tylan is also an option. Long term antibiotics are not a sound treatment option, but if there is an underlying infection, a single round of antibiotics should do the trick.

    Try either Angel Eyes or Angel Glow. I just purchased Angel Eyes today & can't wait to get it. It seems like the way to go.

    Kfamr,

    I think Maltese Love had a thread on this some time ago and had found a product that was working for her. You might want to PM her. (It would be a REALLY old thread by now, might be a pain to try and find it)

    Here's a "stain removal" thread >>>

    Posted as "Tear stained doggie eyes" on 8/04/2006
    by Staci (shais_mom) >>>

    http://petoftheday.com/talk/showthread.php?t=110188

    The suggested product was: "Baby Wipes" >>>

    HUGGIES WITH SHEA BUTTER and use them as eye wipes every day.

    She was amazed at the amount of stain that came off!
    She said it was a considerable amount MORE then the eye stain removers.

    I picked up a box today at Walmart for less then $3 to use in case Kylie's eyes start to do that.

    Like you all i ahd tried allsorts of products trying to get rid of Daisys tear stains and after ruling out infections/allergies ect...i (for us) found the holy grail!
    its called leo eye lotion for dogs and cats and is made by specicare...we got our from the vet,5-6 drops twice a day,and it cleans and breaks down the tear stain marks and prevents new one.
    Below is two photo's of Daisy one when we first got her last May and a second took in November...

    If you read the original post, it is from 2005 - and the problem has been fixed since then.

    My grandmother proudly uses Angels' Eyes on her Maltese & it works like a charm. My aunt, who own a grooming salon, recommended it to us years ago.

    WOW, I was actually doing a google search on this subject, and this thread came up! LOL! I should have come to PT first!

    AnnaBelle has always had tears stains, but since her groom a couple of weeks ago, they seem worse than ever! She was all nice and clean and her tear stains ruined it! *sigh* I'm going to try some of the things listed here! I will post if I have particularly good results with something!

    Seriously - try Angels' Eyes. It's amazing. It's a tad bit expensive, however, works wonders. I bought some for my neighbor's Westie a week or so ago, so far so good!

    Ok, thanks! My groomer told me a while back about using some sort of contac soaking solution or something, but I couldn't remember exactly what it was, so I haven't tried it. I didn't want to buy the wrong thing!!!
