Question "Angel Eyes"

I finally caved and bought the ever so expensive Angel Eyes for Summer. Her tear stains are pretty bad and I have tried all of the other "remedies" for it, but to no avail. Well, I sprinkled it on her food and she HATES it. I even put it on some baked potato (she loves them) and she wouldn't even touch it!

Any suggestions as to another way I could administer this to her?

it does work we have tried it. If she doesn't like it you should dilute it in her food as much as possible. Keep in mind that it is an antibiotic and that long term use is not recommended , at least not by my vet. Quite often diet can cause the staining.

It just gets sprinkled on the food. When I use it,Quincy would prefer not to eat......but he'll eat or go hungry. He has decided to eat every time.

We use it. I put the recommened amount in a spoonful of canned food and Shailee eats it up. We are to the point now that we use it every third day and it keeps the stains in check. It does have to used as directed to work. My Havs don't have a staining problem, I use it for my Maltese.

The antibiotic (Tylan, aka Tylosin) is very bitter and icky tasting.

I buy the powder and mix 1/32nd of a tsp in with peanut butter, then spread the peanut butter between two kibbles and give it to Lincoln. It seems to mask the taste that way.

They sell pill pockets - would the cavity in those be big enough to put the Angels Eyes in?

I wouldn't put it in the water - they might stop drinking!

I usually mix it with a spoon of yoghurt, works perfectly!

Hi, it was me who noticed that the staining lessened using Solid Gold Wee Bits - but he still gets the eye goopy that needs to be taken off daily. It's much less tear production however and I think that helps as well.

Also, others here have found that cheese is a good "hide the medicine" trick. For more natural alternatives if your pup just refuses the Angel Eyes is to try parsley (fresh), raw apple cider vinegar (just a small amount in their water and build up to 1 tsp a day) and others are having great success with yogurt - mentioning the greek variety from Trader Joes. Fair warning however - I tried yogurt and gave way too much and got a poop butt big time on all three of mine.

Amanda - I didn't notice that you had any facial staining - too many Mojitos perhaps? LOL
