We have 2 light coloured Havs Dizzie and Nellie.Dizzie is 22 moths old and doesn't suffer from tear staining, although when he was about 10 months old he went through a short faze of it,only from his left eye,the vet did a tear duct test by using some dye,from which she could tell his tear duct in his left eye is smaller than on the other side, the only time this is a problem is when the weather is either very cold so makes the eyes water or if there is a higher than usual pollen count.Then I use a little cornflour[corn starch] in the corner of his eye and this dries up his tear so we don't get any staining.We do the same with Nellie she is only 8 months old so still teething and sometimes this can cause staining,but it is easy to keep it at bay by using the method I just mentioned.I use a toothbrush to put the cornstarch in the corners of the eyes, it is also good for keeping them clean around their mouths.
