Let's discuss about tear stains in pets and how to remove it. Does your dog look sad? This is often a case of tear-stained eyes. If your pet is happy you want them to look that way. This article will discuss what tear stains are and how you can get rid of them.

Tear stains are marks or stains under pet's eyes and in the groove that goes down near the bridge of the nose. They make your cat or dog look sad or sick. Which probably doesn't make you happy if you have an adorable pet. Tear stains are most easily seen on white pets or light-colored ones.

Before you try to get rid of these tear stains you should probably make a visit to the veterinarian because there could actually be a problem causing the stains. The most common causes of tear staining is excess tear production and blocked tear ducts or it could be caused by one of many eye diseases or some type of food allergy.

If one of those problems is the cause then your veterinarian will try appropriate treatment such as medication, unblocking tear duct obstruction, food trials, or possibly surgery if needed. In some cases the cause of tear staining may not be fully correctable and the problem may reoccur.

If you're ready to try to get rid of your pet's tear stains then there are various things you can do. Angel Eyes is a well-known product that eliminates tear stains, but it's an antibiotic powder that has to be put in the animal's food every day. You should definitely consult your veterinarian before using Angel Eyes. You may want to ask your groomer if they have any tips or tricks for getting rid of tear stains.

You can also try your own remedies. Try cleaning your pet's eyes with cotton balls soaked in warm water. Put a little bit of vaseline where the tear stains occur to try to prevent the hair from getting stained. You should also try to keep the fur short where the tear stains occur. If all else fails try a diet change or probiotic supplements which can help reduce tear staining.
