Default Tear stains

Our last poodle was a black and tan and her eyes just were not an issue with being stained. I would just take a wash cloth and dab at the corners of her eyes and that was enough. I am not sure how to keep the corners or Lexi's eyes clean. I use non alcohol free baby wipes to wipe off her paws if needed, but am not sure what to do about the corners of her eyes. Will the fur around her eyes get stained if I don't do anything other than wipe the corners down?

Potsie must have seasonal allergies, because his eyes didn't run during the winter (he's on the same food, so that's not it). His right eye has been running a lot lately. I wipe it off every chance I get, because my vet says that a bacteria that grows in the tears on their fur causes the staining. Keeping the eyes wiped off helps keep the staining to a minimum. I'll be glad when everything is finished blooming!

Have you tried feeding her some plain yogurt? Apparently that's also supposed to help with their eyes/reducing the amount that comes out.

My poodle had crusty tearing streaks on his face every day for months until a few days after I switched his feeding to include nothing with wheat or corn fillers. No problems since unless he gets sand in his eyes.

What does Mary, your breeder say about it? What food are you feeding?

We are feeding her Nutri Source right now which is what she was already eating. What I thought were tear stains, was really just the dark coloring around her eyes. Yeah, I feel like a rookie poodle owner. Where is the embarassed smiley? We have had her almost three weeks, and her eyes look clean. Her face is clean and we will keep it that way.
