    Default Cranimals Gold for tear stains??

    Hi all,
    I'm trying desperately to sort out my bulldog's tear stains. They aren't infected and I'm cleaning them with MalAcetic wipes and hydrogen peroxide as well as using cornstarch on them to keep them dry. They seem to look better in the evenings after the cleaning but by the morning they're looking red and wet again.
    The fur is starting to look a little better but she's still tearing a lot. I've also noticed some redness on her paws.
    I've been doing a lot of research into ways to get rid of this, I've switched to Fromm's and I'm hoping that will help and I'm going to try using desitin as well, but this morning I came across a product that isn't mentioned on EBN often but seems to have a lot of great reviews!
    It is called Cranimal's Gold. It is an all natural supplement powder made from cranberry extract powder and seaweed meal powder. It is not marketed for tear stains but for skin, eye, joint, and urinary tract health. But people have noticed that a really positive side effect is the absence of tear staining! I'm thinking of trying this- if I can find something that will get to the source instead of just constantly chasing down the stains then that will be better for both of us! She doesn't love having her face cleaned. I have to wait until she is really tired- at that point I can do anything to her, she's like a rag doll!
    I like that it is all natural and that even if it doesn't work for the stains it promotes good health anyway so it can't hurt!
    I'm just wondering if anyone has tried it and had good results?

    Default Cranimals Gold for tear stains??

    Looks like it's two ingredients being cranberry extract and seaweed meal, so it would certainly be worth a try. It definitely would not hurt as those are good supplements.

    I've not heard of that before. However, I have a new cleaning idea. I went on a trip a couple months ago and my son gave Henry a lot of table food and he now has terrible stains I can't get to fade. (I've still not forgiven him) I've tried everything to get them cleaned up. My latest find was where I read that you can use baby oil then wash with clarifying people shampoo and that will clean up the stains. It has reduced his stains a lot. I am feeling good about it. I have been washing his face but not every day because I don't want to get him irritated. I've also only used the clarifying shampoo twice. I usually just use water on a soft wash cloth to clean up the oil.

    Have you tried switching flavors? I went through 3 flavors before I hit lamb and lentils. It helped a lot with tear stains, but Ace still has them. I blame it on seasonal allergies cause the switch to this food helped his shedding like crazy! Before he was a walking "loose hair ball". Now he sheds very little

    @AceTheBathound we've tried pork n peas and now we are on the Salmon one. I'm gonna try a few more flavors. How long before you noticed a difference?

    I noticed about 2 bags later first bag I noticed tear stain decreasing from dark burgundy to lighter brown. So I went with another bag and shedding started to decrease little by little. I'm on my 5th bag with little shedding

    I've heard of it and almost tried it, but I didn't. Opie had tear stains pretty bad when he was a bit younger and we kept trying different foods but had no luck. Instead of spending more money on products we decided to switch him over to filtered water. I know...spoiled dog. But it really has worked. It's the only thing that helped Opie's tear stains. He doesn't even have them anymore
