    Default Tear Stains?

    Hello everyone! Is there anything that can remove tear stains? Winston has two little ones under his eyes that he has had since we got him! I think it was from the food they where feeding him. Is there anything that I can use to help lighten or remove them??? Thanks for your help!!

    I like to use hydrogen peroxide. it bubbles so the dogs don't like it close to the eye, and be careful to not get it in the eye
    but I soak a paper towel and squeeze out a bit on the top of the stain, and rub. it works well.
    but I think you will find that the food he is eating will also cause this, the darker meats, lamb, beef,they can contribute to the stain, try chicken,fish, try Fromm food, I haven't heard anyone say that food is causing any stains, and it may be that your dog is just not agreeing with what you are feeding. but it is probably the protein is a bit wrong for your dogs system that's all. good luck, many people who have white faced dogs , just live with it. good luck, and happy Thanksgiving.
    If you have a question regarding dog food, or behavior! call or e-mail me anytime.

    Or this scrub from carolina pet pantry also helps, once you eliminate the cause anyhow,

    thanks everyone! we are in the process of switching him over to NVI chicken. The stains were there when we got him and they were feeding him Earthborn. I will try to remove them if not I will live with them being there, he is still cute regardless!
