Does anyone use tylan or angel eyes?

I was wondering if anyone here uses Tylan powder or angel eyes for tear stains? My cousin has used it on their maltipoo. The stains don't really bother me. Since our show girls don't show there is really no problem with the tear stains. I do know that tylan can help with a multitude of other problems. What are your thoughts on this?
Thanks

Blessings, Luna and the girls

Angel Eyes

We just started using it on our Papillion and it seems to be working. After a couple weeks we see a difference already. Takes a couple months to really kick in. I've also heard that Baush & Lombe eyewash will work and that's available in any drugstore.

Angels Eyes works but keep in mind it is an antibiotic. We used it with good results but have not had to use it in a while. I think quite often certain foods can cause the problem. The best remedy is to clean the corners of their eyes regularly. I personally wouldn't use Angels Eyes long term.

Angel Eyes

Didn't know that about the angel eyes. Thanks for the info. Guess the cleaning daily with the Baushe and Lombe would be better and healthier.

It also depends on the cause of the staining. If it is because the goop isn't being cleaned, that is an easy remedy. If it is due to blocked tear ducts, you can have that flushed by your veterinarian (although it has potential to return). If it is due to teething, it is a temporary problem. There are so many reasons why dogs get staining on their faces and under their eyes. It is better if you can address the cause instead of subjecting your dog to unnecessary use of antibiotics.

Thank you, the vet just tells me some dogs do this. I clean their eyes twice a day. The stains don't really bother me, I just don't want either of them to have an infection that is causing this. Bella is pretty gunky each cleaning. Usually the one cleaning does it for Zoey they just don't like to be left out of anything LOL I have used Tylan on other pets in the past for various health problems. I guess we will have to do some more research about this. Thank you so much.

Blessings, Luna and the girls

I didn't know staining was a cause of teething... I have been using the eye solution. Hopefully her staining will go away as soon as she finishes teething.

Well, I should clarify that a bit. Teething can cause more tearing due to the pressure in the sinuses with the teeth erupting. The tears not drying can cause the staining. Teething is the indirect cause.

We read that antacids work. My husband crushes 1/4 - 1/2 of a tums, mixes it in applesauce and feeds it to our dog and it seems to work when he is consistent.

Although my vet approves of Angel Eyes, I read enough on here about the antibiotic to not use it. And I don't know about anyone else, but it was so messy! Maybe there was a trick, but Jackson hated it sprinkled on his food, and it turned his mouth even browner! I was also appalled at the cost.

I just clean his eyes everyday with the flea comb, and am now using a little hydrogen peroxide on a cotton pad to clean around them. One eye seems worse than the other, so it may be a blocked tear duct. Unless he is pawing his eyes, I don't worry too much . . . he's not shown or bred, just shown "off."
