    Hi,
    Firstly calm down, it's okay!
    Secondly, If you are inclined, you can change his food, sometimes this is all it takes. That's your call though, you'd have to switch him gradually. Some people will swear by a specific food that fixed tear stains, maybe they will chime in.

    Do you wipe his face daily with baby wipes or puppy wipes? You should be cleaning his face, and then drying his face as well. I would put some cornstarch in those wrinkles too, it will help to dry out the skin.

    Lastly, if you're concerned this might be a health issue, and he's tearing more than "normal" you might want to see your vet

    I sure hear the concern in your voice and while there are many more seasoned bully owners on here and I know you will hear from them also I can speak to my own experience. First of all you have a bully with at least an all white face as do I and the more white the more obvious the tear stains. My EB Dublin has had awful tear stains from nearly day one. The breeder was feeding her Royal Canin and I continued. Over time she developed yeast and just couldnt' get it under control. The more I read and asked about the food I realized that it had dyes and additives. to make a very long story short. I could not get Dublin to eat anything else but she recently underwent surgery and is on steroids ( which make her constantly hungry) so I felt this was the time. I did tons of research and while I found a number of great foods the one I settled on is called Orijen. I am using their "Original Red" No, grains, dyes or additives. Not found at the big box stores but at your specialty pet store. I don't know if the blue wilderness you are feeding Charlie has any dye or food coloring but do check. I am weaning Dublin onto the Orijen and already the tear stains and brown is receeding. I can't imagine giving a 10 week old puppy Angel eyes and tums. She had her two week check up today and the Surgeon was saying how wonderful she looked. She also has gastric issues and I see a major difference there also. Good luck and you are definitely in the right place for great advice.

    I don't know much about tear stains..but I do know Angel Eyes is NOT good for most dogs..let alone a puppy. If you do a search here..I'm certain you will find many things about tear stains..and we even have an article on it.

    I would be more concerned with the high protein vrs the tear stains at this point and time.

    I may be wrong but from what I have read Bulldogs can not tolerate high protein/high phosphorus.

    We keep Lulu on a product no higher then 27% protein and grain free.

    Well... tear stains are only a problem to us looking at their face so calm down. Nothing is "wrong" with your baby. Many things can help clear up the tear stains and I have actually not heard of angel eyes actually helping anyone yet. Cutty had them semi bad for years and then since changing to fromm there isnt a sign of anything at all. I do nothing special really and actually his folds do not need wiped out as often as many here do theirs. Switching foods is totally fine so long as you do it slowly. Many use fromm for their puppies and love it. Although I for the life of me cannot remember how much etc or at what age is ok. others here do tho so if you are interested you will get the help.

    I respectfully disagree with your breeder. Allergies to an ingredient in food/treats seems the number one cause of tear stains. The problem is it's not always easy to determine the allergen or allergens. It's going to take some time to do whatever you do to try to eradicate the tear stains.

    So relax. Tear stains are not life threatening. They can turn into nasty yeast issues, but don't always. More often than not it's more a cosmetic issue than anything. So check out the article provided above and good luck with whatever course of action you choose from the recommendations there.

    When you figure out what helps, post the results and perhaps you can help someone else out in the future.

    I would not use the angel eyes on a puppy myself. It may be an allergy and will clear up soon. It could even be your water doing it. Try filtered water if you are not already. Just give it some time and maybe even try a different food. If he is tearing more than you think he should see your vet. Might be an eye issue.

    He is right now drinking only Nestle purified water.. I start today as well with the peroxide/corn.. to see if this is gonna improve his tear stains. Vet appointment is on friday so I will update some info on friday. What do u guys think about Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream Puppy formula... no chicken, grain free and 27% protein compare to 36% from Buffalo...
