    Keep them clean and dry and put Desetine on them about twice a week, just a dab, and don't get too close to the eyes.

    I use malecetic ultra for stubborn tear stains but use very sparingly, as its pretty strong stuff.

    Berry used to have tears but my vet told me to make sure none of her eye lashes were going under her eye lids. I just wiped her eyes everyday then the tears stopped. and the wetness dried up. Took a bit of time to get her used to getting her eyes cleaned but was worth it as im sure she is more comfortable.

    Tylan powder will get rid of tearstains. Order it online. Give your bully a 1/4 teaspoon on their food twice a day.

    I had problems with tear stains up until I found the right food. Since I got them onto the Fromm and got the protein source right I've never had to worry about tear stains!!

    I'm sure you are feeding the best so apart from the food as an issue you have gotten good advice which is typical in this forum. Ace with the one white side of face around the eye had the stains as well. I wiped it clean every day and was looking for something to work. His all cleared up and the maltese as well who are notorious for tear staining, with the change in kibble. First Fromm and now Whole Earth Farms and Fromm. His became better with the change and is now tear stain free and has been for several weeks.
