    Default EUREKA! Finally something that gets rid of the tear staining

    Hello all!
    Like many of you, I am on a constant quest to find something that gets rid of Darby's red tear staining... especially since I show her on a regular basis, it seems such a shame to have those ugly red streaks mar that gorgeous little doll face.

    I've tried everything.... diet change, Diamond Eyes, Eye Envy, apple cider vinegar (which worked for a while, then stopped), etc....

    Well, it looks like I've finally found a miracle product!! It's called Angel Eyes! I've been using it for a little over a month, as I wanted to give it a good "test run" before recommending it on the board. WOW!!! Unlike all the other things I've tried, which are topical... this is a powder that goes in their food. I was a little leery of anything systemic, but it is 100% pure beef liver, tylosin as tartrate (so it tastes yummy). From the Angel eyes website "Angel Eyes works to prevent tear staining by tying up circulating porphyrins. A porphyrin is a compound that reacts with light to produce a reddish brown stain to the medial canthus. The ingredients in Angels' Eyes will prevent your dog from contracting Ptyrosporin (Red Yeast) and bacterial infections which causes excess tearing and staining." It's even safe for pregnant dogs! Darby still tears, but it is minimal and it is completely CLEAR!! I am thrilled! All I have to do is wipe the moisture away - absolutely NO staining!! Plus, it gets rid of staining around the mouth, too!

    It took about 2 weeks to really notice a difference - but the difference is night & day! WOW!!! To help with her prior existing staining, I applied a mixture of 50% waterless shampoo & 50% hydrogen peroxide (3%) to her stains before bedtime, to get rid of the pre-stained fur... any new tearing is clear!

    Check out their website... the stuff is quite expensive, but WELL worth it.

    I highly recommend the 4 oz (120g) bottle, as the 1oz (30g) bottle only lasts about 1 month. I have found it cheaper on the following website (where I purchased it), and they include shipping free!

    Just thought I'd share this great find with y'all!

    Thanks for the tip! My breeder said that there was a 'food additive' that she recommended if the tear staining was bad...but I haven't noticed it much at all on Bianca. Wonder if it's the same stuff. I'll find out and report back. Sounds like great stuff! -Natalie

    According to the "Angel Eyes" website listed above, they ship internationally. You can also probably do a search for it on other UK online stores and find it elsewhere.

    Default Cornstarch?

    Does anyone ever use a light powdering of cornstarch under the eyes?

    This was recommended to me, but I haven't tried it yet.

    The yeast idea makes sense because the discharge does have a yeasty odor, doesn't it? At least on Barkleigh. I find it unpleasant. His breath is sweet and his ears are clean so one likes to have a fragrant doggie to nuzzle

    Yes - it helps to absorb the moisture, but does nothing to help with the yeast or the staining (or smell). Plus, when I tried it, I found it turned into a nasty white "paste" after about 10 minutes.

    I don't have a cavalier yet but I do have maltese that tear stain. I give them Angel Eyes as well and it helps a lot!! I was also told you don't have to give them as much as recommended, it is just so you will buy more sooner but it has been proven that a smaller amount works just as good.
    Have you tried using polydent?? It is for cleaning dentures but works great on tear stains. You just add two tablets to 1/4 cup of hot water. Let it dissolve and cool. Then carefully rub it on the tear stains making sure you are extra careful not to get it in the eyes. Let set over night and wash out in the morning. It makes a big difference, it works great and it doesn't harm them in any way.

    Default So Cute!

    Maggie is adorable. How old? Just the "look" I love.

    I was in NYC recently and saw 2 Cavs--one had been purchased in Hong Kong another was minded by a dog minder outside of Starbucks. People tip him. I think he does well as the dog walking folks stop by for coffee and their hikes around the block. I'll be back next week and looking forward to seeing the same ones!

    Do you see many in your neighborhood?
