      I was completely oblivious to the the concept of dog tear staining until I bought Oz the bichon home.

      After a couple of months I noticed that the fur under his eyes was becoming a rusty reddish colour. I must admit that I was concerned enough to take him to the vet. The vet game me one of those “you’re a first time bichon owner aren’t you?”

      He explained that many small dogs have under developed tear ducts. This means that the tears run onto the fur rather than going back into the ducts to be recycled. The problem is compounded by the fact that bichons have short noses, this means that the tears fall onto the face rather than falling off the nose. He offered to perform surgery to enlarge the tear ducts but I couldn’t face the idea of my baby going through that.

      After hours of trawling through bichon forums I was armed with a list of potential tear stain remover products. I started off with various pastes that you apply- wait to go dry and them brush off. These helped a little


      but I was worried about the stuff getting into his eyes.

      A groomer recommended a product called Angels Delight- you had to order it from America. She swore by it so I ordered some. When it arrived I was suprised to discover that it only had two ingredients- Beef liver and Tylosin tartrate.

      Even I had an incling that the beef on its own would do nothing for the stains so I googled the tylosin.

      I was shocked to discover that tylosin is an antibiotic- I was also more than a tad annoyed that no one had told me. Never-the-less I trusted my groomer so I did some deeper research after which I was satisfied that tylosin is safe for dogs in the short term.

      I used Angels Eyes off and on for a couple of years. It cleared the stains completely after 4 weeks. I have to admit that I did feel guilty about using an antibiotic to deal with a cosmetic issue.

      All was fine and dandy until one day I got a letter from the UK customs saying that Angels Eyes is illegal and that ...


      • they would not let my order in.

        I was devistated- what would I do now?

        Off I went back to google. I found the Bichon Hotel site which explained why the ban had come in. It turns out that Tylosin has never been approved for use on dogs and that technically it is not legal anywhere in the world. In the USA the FDA turn a blind eye as they have no evidence of harm to dogs and they have bigger issues to deal with. Bichon Hotel used to sell Angels Eyes until the ban. They mentioned that they were already trialling a natural and holistic tear staining product called Angels Delight.

        I figured that I had nothing to lose and opted in to the trial. A bottle of powder arrived in the post a couple of days later. I duly sprinkled it on to Oz’s food twice a day for the first two weeks and then once a week for the next three weeks. 5 weeks later, as promised the tear stains were gone. Now I just use it once a

        week.

        Angels Delight was designed to help with skin, cataracts and bowel conditions. The fact that it is great at stopping the tear stains was a happy coincidence.

        The science behind it is as follows- your dogs tears have oxidising metallic elements in them- they get these from their food and water. These elements are food for the bacteria that lives in the tears. The two combined provide an enzyme that is is the basis of a red yeast. The red yeast is the cause of the red stains. To prevent the red yeast you can either use an antibiotic (eg. Angels Eyes) to kill the bacteria or you can oxidise the the metals inside the body before they enter the tears (this is how Angels Delight works).

        Angels Delight did cost a little more than the Angels Eyes to begin with but in the longer term it works out cheaper. The costs are outweighed by the fact that it is a great vitamin boost. If I had deeper pockets I would use Angels Delight every day, for health as well as tear stain reasons.

        Thank you Bichon Hotel
