|The dreaded tear stain problem is quite common. There are many different reasons for a dog to get them....allergies, shape of eye/eyelid, etc. What has worked the best for my dogs is using an all natural, gluten free, preferrably grainfree kibble, the use of probiotics/enzymes. Solid Gold Seameal is a powdered supplement that contains enzymes. I've used it, as well as some others that have worked for my dogs. I also add high quality, meat based can food to their food. This has worked for mine. Some people swear by the product Angel Eyes, and I must say I've used it myself, though not for long. The original formula does contain an antibiotic called Tylosin. Now they make a formula without it, I believe. I haven't seen it anywhere but online, though. There are many other remedies, recommendations that people will have. The first thing I would do is see the vet to see if there is a physical problem with the eyes. If not, then I would look at the diet. Are you feeding corn, wheat, or any kind of glutens. If not, then I'd maybe try a grainfree food or even a limited ingredient food. I would also add an enzyme supplement to the food that is of good quality, like Prozyme, SG Seameal, etc.
Hope this helped. Good luck!
