Eye Envy Review and Tutorial ~~ Tear Stains

We recently attended Superzoo and picked up a starter kit for Eye Envy.   In the video we show you how we MIGHT use Eye Envy.   We however are uncertain as to whether we would use the product or not as we are not positive about the safety of it’s ingredients.    After looking at this trial kit, we find that FOR NOW we will stick to what we know to work well enough for our maltese dogs.    Our presumption is that one must use AT LEAST 2-3 TRIAL kits to see results on tear stains, however this is just our guess.    Many people have found this product helpful and if you are one of those people, feel free to let our readers know by commenting under the COMMENTS section of our Youtube video.

 

We find that even just daily cleaning with warm water will help keep the face and eye area cleaner then if the face is NEVER cleaned.   Korean fusion Seoulcal groomOur regime/routine for cleaning the eye area of our dogs include the following:

1) Cleaning daily with warm water

2) Washing weekly with Spa Lavish Facial scrub in the bath

3) Daily cleaning with either (a) a diluted solution of the Spa Lavish Facial scrub and/or (b) cleaning eye area with contact solution that contains boric acid

4) Drying the eye hairs with kleenex or a SOFT microfiber towel

4) Drying out the eye area with a touch of corn starch applied with either a q-tip or a eye shadow brush.

 

Tweety had some dental issues, plus the short hair around the eyes didn't help matters.    Tweety has always had some level of staining from when she was a puppy!

CARE IS TAKEN to never allow any solution or powder to get into the eyes.

Tear stains can be caused by many different issues and there is normally a need to do a ‘process of elimination’ to determine what the actual cause of tear stains is.   In our home we have identified several causes for occasional seasons of INTENSE tear staining:

1) Allergies

2) Eye hairs that were cut and are poking the eyes causing irritation

3) Dental issues

4) Illness has caused excess tearing on occasion ~~ if your dog exhibits excessive and smelly tearing ~~ PLEASE CONSULT YOUR VET

5) Actual crying when the family was away on holiday and the dogs cried for us

6) The kibbles we have tried  and certain store bought foods caused staining

7) Blocked tear ducts (although having the tear ducts flushed doesn’t always solve the problem)

The dogs ENTIRE face has come back stained from excessive crying during a non-anaesthetic dental.   I was down with multiple health issues, whereby I was unable to bathe the dogs for several months at a time.   The all teared up pretty badly from lack of regular bathing, and the family was also feeding them kibble at the time, as I was unable to cook for them.    These all contributed to some severe staining in all of our dogs.    Once I got back up on my feet, we had to go to work on cleaning them up with regular face washes and home cooked food.

 

Sheer vanity caused me to CUT a tiny strand of unsightly hair on Cosette.    She had NEVER experienced tear staining, but did have one very THIN strand of hair that held some coloring.

Here are three pictures that depict her BEFORE cutting hairs =======> leading to TERRIBLE TEAR STAINS ======> and after MANY MONTHS of growing out ====== clean again.    She has some faint coloring that has grown to the tips, but her face is much cleaner and the short hairs have finally grown past the length of poking her in the eyes.

    Hello there ~~ I am sorry for my late reply. Sometimes cleaning can be quick when your dog returns to home environment. There are other times you must try multiple cleaning regimes before you see results. Perhaps your Precious cried when you were away and this also caused more sever staining. Hope your Precious is better by now.
