Tear Staining

teat staining in dogs

Dog Tear Staining

Tear staining is brought on by excessive tearing from the eye ducts which leads to brownish-red stains below the eyes. There are thought to be a number of underlying causes for tear staining that go beyond breed and genetics which may be more important to address:

Causes of Yeast Infections in Dogs:

  • Allergies
  • Yeast Overgrowth
  • Infections
  • Poor Hygiene

In dog's with white or light fur, it is easy to recognize tear staining. In dogs with darker coloring, look for watery eyes, excessive itching, and excessive tearing. The reddish coloring is indicative of yeast and is a sign that yeast is overgrowing within your dog's body and expressing itself through the eye tears.

What To Do About Tear Stains?

Work from the inside out by improving your dog's nutrition. Give your dog probiotics to help get rid of the yeast overgrowth as the underlying cause of the tears

Also, be sure to care for and maintain the eye area, especially with dogs that have longer hair. Keep the eye area trimmed and clean.

If your dog is showing some signs of allergies with itchy and watery eyes you may want to consider using a nutritive Skin and Coat formula such as Dermix which contains anti-oxidant compounds as beta-carotene, bioflavonoids, vitamins C and E, selenium, and sulfur-containing amino acids, which are needed to protect the body from the tremendous increase in free radicals that takes place during an inflammatory process.

What about tear stain products that contain Tylosin or Tartrate?

Be cautious of products that contain these ingredients. Tylosin is an antibiotic and may not be appropriate for your dog. While short term use may reduce the reddish brown tear stains for your dog, the product will not address a long-term solution.

Natural Remedies for Dogs with Tear Stains

When your dog has excessive tears and tear staining, it is an opportunity to improve his overall immune health. There is concern with popular products for dog tear stains containing Tylosin, an antibiotic. Tylosin products may not be appropriate for long term use for this reason and may have negative side effects with extended use. As many people have come to learn, antibiotics should be used sparingly and only when necessary. Here are a couple of measures you can take to improve your dog's immune response with no negative side effects:

1. Probiotic Miracle®
Give 2x the recommended dosage of Probiotics for 1 week, then continue with regular dosage as a wellness program. By supplying healthy flora to your dog's gut, it will reduce the reddish brown tear stains that are the result of yeast overgrowth.

2. Dermix™
Supplement with Dermix each day. Dermix contains anti-oxidant compounds such as beta-carotene, bioflavonoids, vitamins C and E, selenium, and sulfur-containing amino acids, which are needed to protect the body from the tremendous increase in free radicals that takes place during an inflammatory process.
