eye stains..nothing helps

Hi All,
My little best buddy, Bandit has bad eye stains. I've tried Tylan & Angel eyes. While the Angel eyes worked so well on my Bichon, Pebbles..it didn't even phase Bandit. I gave him Tylan everyday for a month and stopped then tried angel eyes..same response. Any other suggestions? I bathe Bandit with biogroom whitener shampoo. Thanks for any input!
Sincerely Karyn (Bandit's mom)

I saw the an episode of Beverhills Groomer last night where Artist’s tip to stop the tear staining (not the tearing) was to put Organic Shea Butter or Lip balm on the hair to keep it from absorbing the staining properties of the tears. His quote was it will not hurt the dog.

Isn't that just vaseline? I would think it would cause more problems
Have you tried fresh parsley?

I put cornstarch on the corners of Milo's eyes every morning. It absorbs the stains, and I comb it out once a day. I also use I-stain, a probiotic, once a day in his food.

These are not a greasy as vaseling. I'm going to give it a try on Galen.

FYI.....I looked it up

Shea butter is a solid fatty oil made from the nuts of Karite Nut trees, also known as Mangifolia, that grow in the semi-arid savannah regions of West and Central Africa. Shea butter is sometimes called “women’s gold,” because extracting the butter from the nuts gives employment and income to hundreds of thousands of rural African village women. Shea butter is so non-toxic and beneficial that it is used in foods and cooking as well as soaps and beauty products. (One of my favorite lip balms is a vanilla-scented treat from La Natura made with shea butter. It is totally delicious!)

African healers and beauties have known about shea butter for thousands of years: the substance is almost magical in its healing effects on burns, skin conditions, ulcerated skin, stretch marks, and dryness.

It contains beneficial vegetable fats that promote cell regeneration and circulation, making it a wonderful healer and rejuvenator for troubled or aging skin. It also contains natural sun-protectants.


I am ordering me a case of this stuff.

Ann, I just apply the corn starch with my finger to the corners of his eye (not too close), making sure not to get any in his eye. You need to do this every day to be effective. It really dries up the "gook."

Karyn,

I feel your pain. I have struggled with this for years now and tried many, many products and haven't noticed any changes.
Lots of people here have had tremendous success though and hopefully one of their suggestions will work for you!

Please keep us posted!

I found switching Nala's food, adding probiotic and fresh parsley cleared up her staining up 100%!
