Thread: How long does it take for his wrinkles to go back to white?

  1. #1

    Default How long does it take for his wrinkles to go back to white?

    So I have had such bad luck with Sulley and his food. His wrinkles are extremely discolored -a rust color. My vet suggested I make his food for a while. So he is now eating beef and some vegetables. His stools have gotten so much better, but his wrinkles are still discolored. I clean them and have tried cornstarch/peroxide, but the stain won't go away. How long do you think it will take?

    He may have some yeast issues. And you would need to treat that with something that will get rid of the yeast before the discoloration goes away.

    Is there an over the counter medicine or does he need to go to the vet?

    the discolouration may never fully go away but for any results to be seen it can take some time ,as long as they are not raw or smelly there isnt much you can do about a little tearing,on a dark faced bully you wouldnt notice it but white faced are a different matter,karen

    filtered water also works well. When I switched mine to filtered water, Oliver's tear stains went almost completely away. He has one side that is bad now, but his allergies have been making his eyes super runny so I cleaned it with a mal-a-ket wipe and put some neo-predef powder on it.

    I switched food, filter their water and get a spa facial scrub from Carolina pet pantry. That stuff is unbelievable. One use and there is a major difference.

    Spa facial scrub? I must have! (Says the woman that bought both Desitin and Stridex Gentle today, based on recommendations here) Bea had awful, awful tear stains when she was eating Origen dog food and switching to Bison Sweet Potato (Dick Van Patten's) has helped a great deal - but there are some still there - even with my psycho compulsive wrinkle wiping. One time, I got this fancy "Eyemunity" stuff from happytails.com. Expensive too; you put a little bit in the dog's food and then wipe with the accompanying pads. It did exactly zilch.

    I've decided that until there's a miracle cure, I just have to live with a degree of them. *sigh*

    I used to apply Mal-A-Ket wipes in between Tate's folds which seemed to help. Found out my vet's office doesn't carry this anymore tho so may try Duxo pads instead. I'm also trying a little apple cider vinegar--putting about a teaspoon into his drinking water--to see if this will help w/the redness in his wrinkles and the tear stains.

    It seems to be a constant battle. We have some staining here too but until allergy season passes, I am kind of resigned to them. I am mostly just concentrating on keeping the yeast under control. Cleaning with some sort of "mal" solution will help and then drying super well and applying something to help keep it dry.

    Agree with GatorRay... always a battle especially during allergy season. Our girl was really bad, she is white, but the wrinkles were so dark for her first year. Then we found out what the allergies were (chicken among other things) changed her over to raw food and now they are white. However, during allergy season they are loaded with yeast and very red. We use Tresederm and corn starch.

    Welcome to the club. You know you're a bully owner when they have their very own cupboard full of aesthetic remedies.
