    Someone told me put some talk in just a bit too help it dry and stop irritation while I find the right balance with food. I have my other dog on James Wellbeloved so I think I will be trying that. Shame this is the only food she seems to have not farted on lol

    It may be food related or it may be environmental. Ace as a pup had tear stains too, I too tried everything. I hit the right food or else he grew out of it, or both. In the meantime keep the wrinkles clean. I wipe everyday, usually with just a damp rag or paper towel and dry with a paper towel or toilet tissue or kleenex tissue, you get the point. Sometimes if it gets raw looking I will use peroxide on a tissue and dry as well. And also at times I have used witch hazel to clean. I have also applied after cleaning either Desitin or Bag Balm if it gets really red and angry looking. Main thing is getting the diet best you can and keeping the wrinkles clean. Ace doesn't have them now, but I stay on top of it as well and he seems to tolerate most food though I feed Whole Earth Farms which he seems to like and tolerate well. Also remember to give it time to clear up, even if your doing the right things and right food it will take a little time for the red stained hair to dissipate and new hair to take its place. You will find a fix for this and it will look great before long

    I switched food to grain free and also filtered water at the same time and that made June's stains go away. Not sure which helped, or if it was the combination..

    I can't seem to rid poor Sebastian of the tear stains either , still trying everything but I am thinking allergies . Yesterday he woke up all pink in the face so I gave him Benadryl and he looked better but the the tear stains never seem to get better almost sometimes then they are bad again

    I've been using Bert's Bees for Dogs Tear Stain Remover with complete success. No more tear stains! It took a few weeks, but the tear stains vanished. I drip both sides of a cotton round wipe, then use a side on each tear stain. I gently wipe up, down and back and forth. Daisy likes it just fine. I do it once a day.
