Thank you so much, everyone! So... plans have completely changed, I won't try that after all, I'm trying alternative treatments. I'm not sure if I can get the products you mentioned from where I live, however I can order them online if not sold here

As you said, it just might be the stress that is making it worse, and on the other day I noticed more tear stains, a day after a wash... Note to self, be extra careful around the eyes!

At the moment I try to remember to wipe the face daily with liquid called Diamond eyes, however it doesn't seem to be too good.. Once again, note to self, wipe more than once a day I will also start to wipe them with warm water and a cloth several times a day.

At the moment she is eating only dry puppy food (to gain weight, she is still very badly underweight) and chicken. I never feed my dogs anything else than meat and good quality, hypoallergic dog food so that shouldn't add any more stains.
Thank you again everyone, I'll start looking for the products and read the article above

The lens solution has boric acid and citrate the article recomends one with Vit. C but this was the one that my husband uses so if it didn't work it wouldn't go to waste lol. It has not only stopped the staining it has also faded the exsisting. I also use filtered water, metal bowels and grain free food. The vet had me try the pro biotics but nothing worked. I would wash her face but was uncomfortable around her eyes even with the spa lavish. I soak the cotton ball with the solution and wipe them. Her eyes don't water all the time so that's probably one reason why this has worked. For us.

I too still struggle with maizys tear stains, she is 1yr 1/2 now so not teething, she doesnt seem to have any infections her ears look fine... she had her tear ducts flushed in may when she was spayed and this apparently hasnt solved the problem my vet says it must be seasonal allergies??!! They have been great for the past month or so and now are coming back again!! Its so frustrating we use spa lavish and dry them and brush them daily!! May have to try the contact lense fluid.....

Yeah I'd say soft lenses though there are such a thing as hard lenses but not used much anymore. It's the Alcon one I use but they are all the same. Boots will have a good range of them. You can get travel ones so its a smaller bottle two come in the kit might be good option incase it doesn't work!!

Sammy's tear stains aren't TOO bad and he is teething, we noticed two wee missing teeth last night All we have ever done is wash his eyes out nightly, but can never get the tear stains completely gone. I've ordered the Spa Lavish though to see if that cleans his wee face up some more.
