Dog Eye Stain Solutions
I have a Maltese, Is she in pain and she has eye irritation causing runny eyes.
What can I do?
The bottle says its liver???? Are there other things I can do? Its stupid to waste $30.00 for Angel Eyes for just liver.
Angel Eyes has been reformulated without tylosin tartrate (an antibiotic). The proprietary blend in the new Angel Eyes formulation includes:
Cranberry Powder: May help with tear staining due to its antioxidant properties and ability to reduce bacterial growth around the eyes.
Olive leaf: Has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which could potentially benefit eye health.
Eyebright: Traditionally used as a natural remedy for eye irritation and inflammation.
Marshmallow root: Known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, which may help with eye irritation.
These ingredients might help improve your Maltese's eye health and appearance, but it's crucial to address the underlying cause of her runny eyes. Consult with a veterinarian to determine the best course of action and discuss whether using Angel Eyes is appropriate for your dog.
Angel Eyes is not applied directly to the eyes, and if used according to the manufacturers should not hurt your dog's eyes.
After checking with your veterinarian there are some home remedies you can try:
Regular cleaning: Gently clean the area around your dog's eyes with
a soft, damp cloth or cotton ball. Use warm water and be cautious not to get water into the eyes. Clean daily or as needed to keep the area free from debris and dried tears.
Cornstarch: Some people find that applying a small amount of cornstarch to the stained area, after cleaning and drying, can help absorb moisture and reduce staining. Be careful not to get cornstarch into your dog's eyes.
Hydrogen peroxide solution: Mix equal parts water and 3% hydrogen peroxide (do not use a higher concentration). Dip a cotton ball in the solution and gently wipe the stained area. Rinse with water afterward to remove any residue. Avoid getting the solution in your dog's eyes and use this method sparingly, as excessive use may cause skin irritation.
Apple cider vinegar: Add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to your dog's drinking water. This may help change the pH of your dog's tears, making it less conducive to stain formation. Start with a small amount and monitor your dog for any adverse reactions.
Remember that these home remedies may not work for all dogs, and it's essential to identify and address the underlying cause of tear staining. Consult with your veterinarian to determine the best course of action for your pet.
