    Just curious and figured I ask you all in the know. With Yorkies and Maltese pups when they are teething we see a lot of tear staining. When my Yorkie, Bubbles, was teething I saw a lot of tear staining. Then when she passed that stage, it seemed to stop. Now I only get tear staining if her facial hair pokes her in the eye. Is this maybe a possibility with bully babies as well?

    I take him in on the 21st for his final parvo shot I'll ask him then. I read it could also be tap water? I am going to try him on filtered water see if that helps

    While my Wilson still has water eyes, once I switched him to filtered water from the fidge, his rust stains under his chin disappeared completely.

    You're spot on @kazzy220. One eye on both dogs tears more than the other and on one side they have tear stains. I drive myself crazy trying to get rid of it. Now we're trying witch hazel. The last time I was complaining about this with my vet, he told me about some medication that came out for some other random condition and the amazing side effect is that it clears up tear stains. Like POW! I didn't want to give them unnecessary drugs - and he agreed with this decision - but told me that if I'm ever THAT nuts about it, he'll write the RX. I wish I could remember what the drug was and what it was really for.....
