Try Clear Tears (Clear Tears) best bang for your buck hands down - works without question. Ive used the others like angles eyes with success but it is too expensive imo

I saw in a catalog ( there is a product called Angels Eyes. The price range is from $24.95 to $69.95. They show a before and after picture. I have not personally tried it, but it's an idea. Good luck!

Kassie gets a similar stain but at her mouth. I think its from old age and drooling (she pants a lot cause she gets hot from all her hair....she is being shaved soon)

Both my shih-tzus get this... my vet just prescribed eye drops... they are supposed to clear the protein from the eyes and drain into those areas and avoid the stains... just started using them...
