Three times a day should be fine for feeding a new puppy. Just keep the total amount you are feeding now and divide by three.

Angel eyes is an antibiotic and it is a bad idea to be used without the guidance of a veterinarian... especially for a cosmetic issue like tear staining. Some white dogs have on-going tear staining issues, but many puppies outgrow it when they are done teething.

Welcome and congratulations!

Agree about feeding three times a day at that age.

Regarding the staining of the fur by the eye, I use a washcloth with a some warm water to clean only the fur at that site twice a day. Be careful not to touch or cause tension at the inner portion of the eye ( inner cathus) where there is a third eyelid to avoid giving the dog cherry eye.

I also brush my pup's teeth twice a day and combine it with the fur near the eye care. Even though they lose their baby teeth, it is a good idea to get them used to brushing their teeth (inner and outer surfaces) at an early age with positive feedback like treats and praise.

Welcome to the forum. Be prepared that some dogs don't outgrow the tear staining no matter what. Bichons, Havanese, Poodles, and Maltese are just a few breeds prone to tear staining. Congratulations on your new puppy. I am sure you will love her regardless. Please post pictures, we are looking forward to seeing her.

I know this does not help in all cases but changing my Mias diet took care of her tear stains.

It is worth a try. I never found a permanent solution. Hopefully, some of these things work if tear staining bothers you a lot.

Actually I never really thought much about her tear stains. That is not why I changed her diet. It was awhile after changing her diet that I suddenly realized she no longer had the tear stains. Since that was the only thing I did different, I figured the diet was what got rid of them.
