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!

Good advice. I'll also add that if you're in a temperate region, heaters are kicking on this time of year in a lot of places, blowing around a lot of dust and the like. Kills my allergies every year. If it just started, that's another thing to look at.

Also keep your eye out for squinting, excessive pawing/rubbing, or goopy yellowish, greenish, and/or stinky discharge. My poodle had a couple rounds of eye infections when he was younger, and they started with excess tearing. Just get back to the vet if it seems to be getting worse or causing significant discomfort. Hope you find out the cause soon!
