Staining can be caused by a variety of factors:
Cutting Teeth: Cutting teeth may cause changes in the head & mouth structure of your pet, placing pressure on the tear ducts.
Irritation & Allergies: Some animals get hair or eyelashes into their eyes causing irritation. Many breeds are susceptible to allergies. Shampoos and other chemicals can also irritate their eyes. Some foods cause allergic reactions and pets could also build an allergic reaction over time to a type of food.
Eye Envy works directly at the source of the true problem - bacterial infection. Eye Envy contains a cleanser, an astringent (to dry the area), an herbal flower extract (acts as a natural antibiotic) and an antibacterial.
Eye Envy is a topical tear stain remover. Other products are often masked as palatable supplements, taking months to work and requiring your pet to ingest antibiotics (e.g. tylan, tylosin as tartrate).
Bleach/Peroxide can make the hair shaft very porous, causing the stain to set into the hair. Eye Envy will only lighten the areas previously damaged by bleach or peroxide, but all future regrowth will be clean.
Be aware that any products containing whitening or brightening agents, such as bluing, blueberry, cranberry or other antioxidants, mimic the properties of bleach or peroxide. The ingredients will initially clean the hair shaft, but causes the hair to become porous. Next time the area stains, those stains will set, making it almost impossible to clean completely. If you have used bleach, peroxide or any of these types of products, the stain area will maintain some slight discoloration, but regrowth will be white.
