Sonic has had really weepy eyes since his Cherry Eye surgery but they stay wet and hardly ever stain or get hard.

Your post made me wonder if my cleaning was not thorough. How much pressure do you apply? Does the hair get soaked? Would that help if I shampoo his face every night - oh, he would hate that.

I use some pressure, it does not remove the stain only the gook at the corner of the eye. I do swab down the drip stain. It is not saturated because the pads are only moist. It takes months to clear the eye area of that nasty red color. Patience. Every day cleaning, and you will have the stain 95% gone.

Jack's right eye does not drip as much as the left eye now, so wondering if it is an age thing too. When I look at Jack's eyes now, there is a eye stain just in the corners but not enough to say it looks bad.

Does this stuff have antibiotics in it?

You may want to try feeding raw and using purified water. Avoiding chicken may be another thing worth trying. Certainly avoid grains.

I've been using Tearlax now for about one month and I definitely see an improvement. Less tearing and alot less gunk. I ordered it online. It's not cheap but it works!

Chicken isn't necessarily bad, it's just the most common protein base to be allergic to. You may want to eliminate grains first then if things don't improve eliminate chicken too.

Nina also has issues with tear stains. We use Taste of the wild lamb or the wild variety. She also gets filtered water and Angle Eyes the one without the antibiotics. I am thinking about trying the one with anti biotics as I can not say that the one without helps. We comb, clean and groom daily.

And the hair is not fluffy but actually quite stiff, like fifties hair. On a daily basis I wash around his eyes with a contact lens solution (renu). He loves and gets lots of yogurt and I know it makes the hair hard around his mouth - but I clean that too. Do you use leave in conditioners?

Thanking in advance for any insight.
I'd love to know the best way to get yogurt off the face. Bama had some on vacation and it was no fun to deal with.
