Eye gunk and urine stain questions. Help please :)

Truman is doing great. We have the potty training 90% down and are using the bell method which he really has the hang of .

We bath him about twice a week right now. Mainly because the pee odor on his belly gets horrid after about 3 days. We use baby wipes after every pee. Does anyone have a better solution? We haven't used a groomer yet, but should we ask her to shave his belly when we do? His coat is white so it turns yellow despite using the baby wipes.

Also, he gets a lot of black goopiness on the hair beneath his eyes. We wet it and kind of comb it out with his baths. Is this normal? The vet said his eyes look good etc. Is there a daily cleaning we should be doing for this?

Thanks for any help you can offer

Eye goop is common. The best way to deal with it is to stay on top of it. Clean their eyes every day. We use a fine tooth comb. Twice a day is even better.

Colbie use to get urine staining too. As she got older it got better. Also she started self grooming more. We usually get her belly shaved when she is groomed.

The eye goo and staining definitely improve as they get older. You still have to clean the eyes but not as much. When they are little and teething there is definitely more tear staining!
