    Ive recently found out that filtered water will help. Theres something in tap water that causes the tear stains but filtered water doesn't.

    Filtered water definitely helped our Frank with his tear stains. We finally got him on a food that agreed with him, but he had persistent tear stains. They improved so much after we switched him to filtered water versus tap (or non-filtered) water.

    Yes. We give Tyson only filtered water. We have a delivery service that brings the gallons every month

    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    I heard it had to do with the coloring of the food and if it is dark they get dark tear stains and light they don't get it as much.

    I've tried all these things with Wheezies tear stains but no luck yet.We have a spring fed well and they get yogurt daily and ACV in their water. My vet actually said her brown staining could be the ACV.Who knows!!

    Thanks for the info about the amount of greek yogurt. I opened a container for Moose (small), but was not sure about the amount to give him. I am using grain free food and grain free treats only. I am also using ACV in his water. I will go give him some yogurt now. Thanks for your post! You all are such a big help.

    I should have updated. We had the original issue as I posted l. With nothing but a location switch we had bad tear stains all of the sudden. We talked to the vet and asked if we could switch from Benadryl to a bigger dosage common allergy pill that most humans take. The name escapes me but we only give him one a day (50mg) and that has really helped and he is back to pearly whites. I don't know if the two Benadryl tablets became ineffective but this works for us now.

    I have the same problem with mine, for Jackson he tears a lot more than normal because he had & currently has Entropion eyes. We had surgery when he was 2 years old to remove the extra skin but it's still apparent that his eyelids roll in just little bit. It's because of that cute nose rope of his! We possibly may do another surgery but we are dealing with allergies first to see if we can keep his eyes from swelling up. I make sure put Optixcare in his eyes every morning, it's a surgical lubricant for eyes that the veterinarian recommended. I wipe the stains with the same stuff I wipe his nose with (Miconahex+Triz) and make sure to keep any infections or bacteria away, dry it and that's it. There's nothing I can do about the color until we figure out what is causing his possible food allergies. I would hate to get other medications not meant to be in the eye anywhere near his eye & cause damage. Dogs have a way of rubbing crap in their eyes and faces... haha literally! You should have seen him while potty training, he managed to not cry in the middle of the night when he had to go #2 and just did it anyways - then he slept in his own stuff like it was a pillow or something... not a care in the world!! haha gotta love him

    Highly unlikely ACV caused the staining.
