Small Dog Breed Eye Stain

Wednesday, October 18, 2017
posted by Jim Murphy

Many light colored dogs, especially small breeds like the Maltese develop a brown or pink stain around the corners of their eyes.  Sometimes it actually looks like the dog has been crying muddy tears. The color of the tears themselves is not what’s causing the stain.  When there is extensive wetness around your dogs eyes, the area tends to breed yeast and bacteria which reacts with clear tears to cause discoloration. To prevent staining, keep the area around your pets eyes clean and dry and try to get at the reason for your dogs excessive tearing.  It could be irritation, blocked tear ducts or even genetics.  Have your veterinarian examine your pet. There are pet medication like prescription eye drops that can help.
