Toby 5 Month update and Tear Stain Removal attempt

Hello all,
Toby is now 5 months old and doing great! He is healthy, energetic, happy and overall has integrated with our family wonderfully! I wanted to share a "Fresh out of the bath" photo with you as well as a "real time" tear stain product trial and review.Here is Toby:



As you can see, Toby is still battling the tear stains. He eats Orijen Puppy dry food mixed with Merrick's canned food, both grain free and purchased from Natural Paw's. While picking up food yesterday, I asked their recommendation on a safe and natural stain removal product, they swear buy a product called "No Stains Fur Me". Here is a picture of the container:



I am going to give Toby is first dose right now with his lunch, I will try to snap a daily picture of him and keep y'all updated. Wish us luck!

This is a great idea. I would love to follow his progress. What is the active ingredient in this product? Good luck!

I just looked it up! Happy it is all natural and very curious to see if it works. I won't give my guys the antibiotic type, but if this stuff works, I will try it!

Doh! I'm sorry I meant to include the ingredients, I am on the Road right now, so I will have to give you that info in a little bit (so no one else has to look it up). Like mentioned, it is all natural (olive oil grape root and something else I believe) and it cost around 20 bucks.

This works, might take a few times. I put it on let it sit for several minutes before rinsing. The longer the better. https://www.iodogs.com/p-390-brighte...d-shampoo.aspx

Ruth4Havs - no worries, that picture was taken about 2 hours after his first dose. I posted the second picture because he was completely dry (the first picture was fresh out of the bath wet). I will try to post daily pictures.
Whimsy - Pau d'Arco is a Bark extract from an American tree called the Tabebuia impetiginosa tree I believe. Exclzyme PET is a multi enzyme supplement common in many wines. Stevia is a plant whose leaves are used as a natural sweetner, the main benefit of the stevia is its abilities to mimic antibacterial medicines.

rdanielle - my goal is to treat the source of the staining, not fight the stain itself. But I will definitely keep this in mind if this doesn't work. As far as treating the actual stains, wiping with warm water once a day has proven to work pretty well for us. Thanks for the recommendation!
