Hi, I have a 9 month old British Bulldog she is so beautiful but has really deep tear stains that really spoil her face and was wondering of anyone has a real solution on how to get rid of them and that it works!! Up to now iv tried babywipes used twice a day and also Optrex eye wash as it contains Boric acid but none worked and its driving me up the wall!!! Any info would be brillant many thanks
I use Eye Envy for my Himalayan cat. It works well and they have a starter kit for dogs as well. There's a liquid with some pads to clean with and then a powder that you use after. The techs at my vet also recommended Angel Glow which is a powder you put on their food to prevent the stains. They have a customer who is a poodle breeder and that's what she uses and recommends.
I have been to my vets who have said to put talc on the tear stains??? has antone else done this and does it work i presume its to dry the fold out so as to no bactria can form and eventually tear stain will grow out please bear in mind i live in Spain and its not a very forward country
The second step of the Eye Envy is essentially the same as using talc. It is a powder to dry the area, repel stains and kill bacteria. So that advice from the vet seems reasonable. And just so you know, anything I suggested, even for the ringworm issue are things that can be purchased on the internet. So I would assume you can get them even in Spain although the shipping might make them cost too much.
I have stopped using the internet for ordering as i am still yet to receive anything that iv ordered evern from well known websits like amazon so all i can use is what i have available to me here in Spain so it makes it a little worse :)
