    Maltese dog's tear stains

    I have a cute male Maltese with dichromatic eyes. He has awful tear stains on his face. I have tried every trick and product known to PetSmart that doesn't require 3-4 times a day activity. Any ideas on how to whiten his facial fur?

    Not in close proximity to his eyes, no.

    Dip his head in bleach.

    J/k

    But Taz used to get spit stains on his white paws from licking them so much and when I took him to get groomed at petsmart they used something on his feet to get rid of the stains. I have no idea what it was.

    Or you could just die his whole body brown and be done with it

    The real question here is why is Bill making his dog cry?

    My cat sometimes gets a watery glassy eye. I dilute 1 teaspoon of salt with half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda in a quarter cup of boiled water and when lukewarm, I soak cotton-wool balls and squeeze out and swab from the inner corner of his eyes to the outer corners. I use separate swabs for each eye. It works so well I seldom have to do it twice in a row.

    One of my sisters worked as a dog groomer for a while. I asked her for recommendations and she asked what food you feed your dog.
    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.

    Either you have an abnormally tolerant cat, or you left out the part where several people have to hold him down for this procedure.
