In a pup her age it is most commonly from teething. Just keep up with cleaning and see if it stops when she finishes teething.

Just keep her face clean and dry as possible......That will help and if she is teething, it too shall pass. You don't want to use antibiotics if she is real young. Good luck!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too! When changing food, I usually do it a bit at a time and not half and half from the get-go. At this age, I'm assuming she's probably eating around 1/4 cup. I would just add may be 5-10 kibbles the first day, then increase the amount over a 5-7 days period. Raine has a very sensitive tummy so even at 18 months, I'd still introduce new food to her slowly. I also give the new food to them as treats 5-10 kibbles/day while still feeding them the old food. This way they slowly become accustomed to it.

I am curious about this too. My baby never had tear stains. But even breeders show their puppies and I've never seen tear stains on one, their faces are always white....

Actually, I've seen lots of puppies shown with tear staining (my own included!) I use cornstarch, baby powder or Pawmarks drying power ringside to help camouflage/dry the face.

To the OP, your baby is teething right now, so don't stress it. Wait a few months and then if it's still bad, you can address it with Angel Eyes or something similar, if it is still a problem.

One reputable show breeder told me that the majority of show dogs actually have tear stains, but the public does not know that. They just use chalk and other whiteners in the ring. Now before I get blasted, let me reiterate, NOT EVERY SHOW DOG HAS TEAR STAINS. I was told the MAJORITY of show dogs have some staining that is masked by the chalk, etc.

Eukanuba small breed can cause tear staining. My puppies stain worse when I used this product. Food plays a big role in staining. It takes time to figure out what will work with your dog and what won't.

Shouldn't be blasted because you're absolutely correct. Many maltese in the show ring have some tearstaining.
