    As an "Ole Time" groomer they do have products for eye stains. Wiping with plain water is usually the only thing that really helps. You could also try an inexpensive natural tear drop. I use it on my little long haired cat. Seems to help with the red eye thingy too. It is irriatation that causes the tears that cause the eye stain.

    Had a vet tell me once that the red tearstains were caused by the dyes in dog food, and with Jake, we found that to be true...if we fed him "red" food, he'd have the stains...when we stuck with Iams (a tan colored food) he didn't have the stains.
    Had a groomer tell us that we should be washing his face everyday anyway...that the tears can cause sores on dogs with sensitive skin...we started that, but he took over himself and would wash his face like a cat!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    We use a product called Angel Eyes for our very white Maltese, Joey. People often ask us how his face stays so white, no tear stains! Our local Humane Society sells it, so I was confident to try it. It is also available on Amazon. We just sprinkle it on his food. He doesn't even seem to notice and he is very picky. We have been using it for about 5 years now with great results. We had tried several products to wash the tear stains that did not work at all and we are not very good about washing his face. This is great stuff. Hope you give it a try.

    My Vet says to use saline solution and cotton balls to sooth and remove any doggy eye boogers as hubby calls them.

    I take a wet cotton ball to wipe Tink's eye's every day. It eliminates the stains under her eyes.

    That is what I've been using, a cotton ball or wash rag with just warm water. Didn't want to put anything on him that might harm his eyes. I was/am going to try a little no tears baby shampoo if I can remember to buy some. Since it's okay for our eyes I thought it would be okay for him. Thanks for the replies.

    Use cotton balls in stead of a washcloth or another
    rag you may use. because they have been washed
    and may have some fabric softerner on the cloth
    and could hurt your animals eyes.

    Keeping the hair around the eyes out of the eyes will lessen eye watering.

    Putting a half teaspoon of apple cider vinigar in their water bowl prevents this and keeps them really healthy to
    Create something beautiful from scraps.
