My in-law's Beagle has black stains under her eyes from goo it looks like. What is the best way to clean this up and make her pretty again? Could it mean something else is wrong with her eyes as well, or just that they don't clean the goo that much?

It depends on whether the stain is from an aging deposit or the actual secretion is coloured. The latter would mean infection and the former could be the result of a blocked tear duct. This is easily checked. the vet puts coloured drops in the eyes and , if the ducts are clear, the colour comes out of the nostrils.
