Default Tear stains ... Grumble Grumble

They just come up out of nowhere!!! Ari did not have them when I got him and bam now he has them 3 mos later!!

I wash his face everyday, use solution (Renu) on his eyes, started Angel eyes 3 weeks ago and he looks worse than he did before!!! I feed him buffalo blue.. I use bottled water..

What am I missing ? Tear stains ... Grumble Grumble-imageuploadedbypg-free1357866955.518780.jpg

He's sleepy and won't open his eyes!!

Is he teething? That may be the cause. Also, if you aren't already, use stainless steel or ceramic bowls because the plastic ones can harbor bacteria and cause staining.

I would ask your vet what you could do or take him to an ophthalmologist to see if his tear ducts are blocked...sometimes they need to be flushed!
