Cat and dog tear stains are generally just a cosmetic issue—they mess up your fur baby’s otherwise perfect face and make them look sad! At the same time, they can indicate an infection, so it’s important to stay on top of your cat’s or dog’s eye health. You'll also want to wipe tear stains away because a build-up can lead to a yeast infection. Learn more about the best way to get rid of tear stains and support optimal eye health for your fur baby!
What Are Tear Stains?
Your cat’s or dog’s eyes produce tears to keep the eye healthy and get rid of dust and other things that might get in their eyes. When the eyes don’t drain properly, or if they're irritated regularly because of allergies or another issue, then the tears will drip down their face. The tears contain porphyrin, a compound that contains iron, and that’s what leaves the noticeable reddish-brown tear stains.
