Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

We adopted our husky Kyle about 9 months ago, and although he did have slight tear staining under his eyes, it has now appeared around his mouth. I asked the vet about it and he said it was harmless, just an enzyme in his saliva causing the reddish/brown tint. It has slowly progressed to getting darker and larger around his mouth. It just bothers me sometimes because it looks funny.

I know its not his food because we feed with no dyes or color additives and I've switched his bowls to ceramic to stainless and nothing helped....I've thought about maybe the water because we do have well water.

I've tried a spray from Petsmart but it was crap and did absolutely nothing!

Does anyone have any experience with this? How did you get rid of it?

Elara gets tear stains every now and then (seems worse when she's been digging a lot) and Siku gets those stains around her mouth. I don't know how to "cure" them, but I don't think it does any harm.
