    Our boy Bogey has a blocked tear duct which causes tear stains. We ended up using Naturally Tearfree Canine. It's all natural and worked wonders. Week one you use one dose of half a teaspoon for three consecutive days. Week two for two consecutive days. Week three for one day. That's one cycle. We did two cycles for Bogey and he looks amazing!... We mixed the dosage with some natural peanut butter. Hope this helps!

    Most tear staining that I am familiar with comes from food dyes or seasonal allergies...or both. The Tylan works well and may last for weeks or months. It is good as a treatment until you can determine the cause. If the cause cannot be determined then you may have to pulse it every so often once it's under control. Every dog is different and will require different treatments...so a measure of trial and error should be expected.
    Our youngest, Lala, started showing stains at 6 months. We were pretty sure it wasn't the NOW food so we assumed it was seasonal allergy. Treatment with tylon cleared it up in 10 days (the staining never got bad). That was 7 months ago. I'm hoping it doesn't return next spring but if it does I'll know what to do.

    With Orion...we put her on grain free Fromm, a course of antiobiotics and greek yogurt.

    It worked. It was a slow process but it worked.

    On both bulldogs. Vegas is not on grain free...but had the yeast/bacteria stain on his chin. Not anymore. Here are pictures.

    when i got my Rocky he had a beautiful white face.. he was on a very poor diet and since i have another dog with food allergies i like to put all my dogs on the same thing so she don't get into the wrong food... well, wasn't long before rocky's pretty white face started getting tear stains really bad... it was terrible.. poor dog got tired of me cleaning his face.. I tried many things.. then as i was reading on this site someone told me to try to cut out the rice.. lamb and rice was basically all my other dog could have.. but i got lucky and found a fish blend the she was able to eat and had no rice... and woo-lay... it worked.. his tear stains cleared up and look great.. i wish i remember who told me because i owe them a big thank you.. it was driving me crazy... don't know if it will work for you but you may look into it.. he is now on earthborn holistic.. coastal blend.. they all (4) seem to like it and my food allergy dog is good with it too.. good luck.. i know some dogs get them alot but I am now a believer that it has alot to do with food..
