QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Does this just create clear tears that won't stain, or does it actually address the underlying problem and heal the root of the problem? Would giving the Immune booster or GI support chews replace this product?
Vet Classics Tear Stain Soft Chews help by diminishing the rust color produced with the increased production and leakage of tears onto the hair adjacent to the eyelid. Excessive tear staining may be caused by a multitude of issues including allergies, eyelid confirmation, everted hairs, a small nasolacrimal duct or a combination of these issues. In essence, this product only addresses the discoloration produced by the tears not the overall root of the problem as the root may be multifactorial and not confined to one specific issue.
So, make sure no hairs contact the eye itself which may require trimming. Controlling allergies or exposure to allergens is important as well. If the drainage duct is too small, then correction may require professional help. However, this product has helped many small dogs with the unsightly rust color that appears from the excess tears.
If the problem is primarily an allergy then Complement Immune would likely satisfy your needs and not require both the Complement Immune and the Tear Stain chews but using both would be best.
