Tear stain treatment

Mix together :
1 500 g tub aqueous cream
2 tbspoon natural lemon juice
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp bicaronate of soda

make into a paste, I use the kitchen blender.

apply to the stained area daily with a tooth brush and brush into the stain Keep away from pigmented area and inside the eye.
Keep on overnight if possible.
or apply with a cotton ball wipe down away from the eye or beard or paws and repeat daily. you know if you are doing it right as you will see the red pigment from stains on the tool used to apply.

It dont matter if doggy licks this as its all 100% safe.

hope this helps

made up the product will last up to 6 months in the fridge.

Pleasure, I rescue alot here so I know how bad some staining is, I have been known to accost owners in the street and give them a pot of this (they think im nuts lol)
Just to avoid seeing a doggy with infection as the staining is left untreated.
I have added some other info re anal glands , I am qualified so its ok, if anyone needs advice or help simply ask , its a pleasure to help dogs and owners and encourage them to have a happy healthy future.

What is the aqueous cream, eurobichons? It is apparently only sold by prescription in the states... Does that mean it can be dangerous?

Sheri, I was asking the same thing. I looked it up, here's what I found.

The common ingredients are:

liquid paraffin
white soft paraffin
purified water
emulsifying wax containing sodium laurylsulphate
cetostearyl alcohol
chlorocresol

I guess it's worth a try. Thanks for the FYI Eurobichons.

Thanks, Beth. I couldn't find anything from my brief search that sounded like a reason for it to be prescription only here in the US. I'll look up the ingredients you found and see what they are.

Ok made this up with a similar hypoallergenic cream. Do you have to wash it out? and how long until it starts working?
Scoobies tearing is pretty bad.

no you dont just allow to dry and wipe away or use a clean brush to remove.

To show its working all you need to do is put some onto a cotton wool ball and wipe away from the eye on the staining , you will see the red stain come away .

Just keep doing until all gone, you may notice the red stain going a brownish grey colour, that is the stain receeding.

his can also be used on any stained area.
