Nothing looks worse than a dog with a light-colored coat that has dark tear stains under his eyes. These stains appear for a number of reasons, such as poor nutrition, excess over-breeding, and irritation caused by overgrown facial hair. The good news is that there are a few ways you can go about removing these unsightly stains. Cleaning them on a regular basis is not only aesthetically pleasing but can reduce the risk of a yeast infection that can result from the hair in this area being damp all the time.
Chances are good that your pup doesn't care what color the hair under his eyes is or what it looks like. At least, that is, until the cause of the stains start to affect his vision or his eyes become infected. However, he does count on you to take care of this problem as he can't do it for himself.
In most cases, the tear stains are more of a cosmetic problem than anything serious. But there is always the risk of an infection setting in if you don’t keep it under control. Cleaning the stains is a simple task using everyday household supplies. Do your pup a favor and keep the hair under his eyes clean, it only takes a few minutes out of your day.
