    We've seen that it changing food can make a difference. When Castor was young, we had some kibble that caused dark-coloured tears and then we turned to raw (as I say in an old post above!). After a while he was back on kibble, but another kind and everything was fine until a year or so ago. The I think it was his salmon oil that caused dark tears. So we switched to another oil (Nutrolin) and things are much better. Now, dogs are different, but in Castor's case, if this was food-related, it seems like beef and salmon were the culprits. Now he eats game and gets veggie oil and his tears are no longer dark.

    I have been very lucky with mine, as they have not had tear stains.

    As soon as I put Duke n Jake on raw, stains simply disappeared. I still clean them with fragrance free baby wipes but you absolutely need to dry the folds really good. Jake is all white but days it can turn very light pink cause Nyala keeps licking the poor guy’s face like there was no tomorrow. It tends to stay moist. But yes, I find it’s what you’re feeding your dogs. Probiotics = good immune system. Get some smelly green tripe as a snack. It will help!

    Monty had tears stains when we got him but they went as soon as I got him off Royal Canin, which was the food his previous owners fed him. Never had them since.

    I've read about baby powder, corn starch and witch hazel concoctions, milk of magnesia even? I don't want to sting her eyes or hurt her in any way.
    I'm going to try some of the suggestions I just read here, and I'm curious if teething has anything to do with it?? (I read somewhere that until they're done teething nothing will help tear stains, is this true??) She's still a puppy, almost 6 months old.

    yes, teething can add to it. But it is one of those things, you have to find what causes it. Could be food, allergies, eye lids, eye lashes. process of elimination.
    My guys is 5 and his eyes never stop tearing, environmental allergies are his problem, so there is always a slight stain for him, even with daily cleaning and feeding raw.
