    Spunky had tear stains at 9 weeks as well, we have been putting something our vet recommended on them it's a liquid and then a powder my wife @Spunkysmom2012 should be able to chime in on what exactly it is, lol, sorry I don't know exactly (she ordered it for us) Also check the kibble the pup is on, I heard sometimes diet can determine the severity of the tear stains.

    Diet can be a factor. Its gonna take some time for you to find the food that is gonna work on your baby. For now try to wipe his wrinkles twice a day and dont forget to dry them too!! Some put a little bit of corn starch,or desitin ,or gold bond too.

    It does seem a little young ... are they just brown stains or are they actually sore and irritated looking??

    My bulldogs developed tear stains at a very young age too, and I still have not found a definite way to correct them. I have tried raw diet, fromm, apple cider vinegar and cleaning/drying and nothing helps. I have been giving them 100% filtered drinking water and hopefully this will revert the problem. Good luck!

    I blew up the pic you posted and the tear stains don't look bad at all. We use Witch Hazel to wipe HRHs wrinkles. It is an astringent so self dries. Its the moisture that causes the sore if it gets real bad. Wiping the wrinkles a few times a day to make sure they stay dry is just part of having a bully in many instances. He sure is a cutie!!!

    Just a thought to consider for all those who have tried everything they can think of under the sun for tear stains. Wilson has horrible watery eyes 99% of the time. I also thought it was due to food, possibly eye lashes or even tear ducks. Funny thing was that I started noticing that when he waked during the morning his yes were pretty much dry and then would start watering pretty quick. When he got neutered last week his vet checked his eyes out. His watery eyes are not due to any of the above. Wilson has "prominent" eye folds on both sides that press up again the eyes to water. I never would have though of that. Wilson's a year old now as of January. Also, I just wipe him down with cotton balls twice a day, sometimes more if needed, and he's never been stinky on the face or red from sores of the constant wetness.....just wet and stained. I too use baby wipes, Witch Hazel and Mal-A-Ket wipes which all seem to help.

    Emma, who is 10 weeks old, has just started with a bit of wetness on her left eye but only in the fold. I'm not fretting over it at all right now as I think that's normal to some degree.

    I got Chuy at 14 weeks and he had and has tear stains. He is on Fromm for large breed puppies, receives angel eyes with his food, gets them washed at least twice a day with baby wipes (scent free, sensitive skin, gentle), gets witch hazel wash at least once a week, ... not clearing up too much yet. I think when we switch him to Fromm dog food at 6 months it will be better. We did get him a powder at a pet store that covers up the stains... we have only used a little bit to get him use to it. I feel like such a stage mom putting it on him so that he can be prettier for pictures. This shows his stains pretty well:

    Please excuse any spelling or grammatical errors... I probably have both bulldogs laying on me or fighting for attention...
