Nasty eye stains? How do you deal with them??

Hey! I recently visited my sister and she was really concerned about her 2 yo Bichon which recently started having stain marks below his eyes. She did went to the vet and he recommended just cleaning the area around the eye with wet towel every morning. 2 weeks later it's still the same. This really got me interested what people are doing to stop it, of course she already scheduled a vet visit but I just had to do my own research as well :flypig: Thank you in advance!

My vet suggested they were due to allergy. Sure enough we lucked out big time and a simple Benadryl a day is keeping the nasty drainage at bay. She's been here 5 years and on the stuff for 4 of those years. Not happy she needs it but it is doing a great job. Ginger has a clean face. Some fuzzy faced dogs have hair irritating the cornea or eyelashes growing in. Sometimes small breed dogs have blocked or incomplete tear ducts. I had her ducts checked when she was under for a dental and they were fine.
Yuck. My Ginger was raw fed for a year, no change in the eye problem. Hope a change in food helps.
