We just picked up our darling Daisy, but noticed immediately she had major rust-colored eye stains. After having her for less than an hour we realized her eyes were watering all down her face (like her eye ducts we’re draining at all). I tried calling the vet to schedule an appt but they were closed due to Christmas yesterday.

Has this happened to any of y’all? Please tell me it’s an easy fix or temporary problem. 😬

My standard had one eye where the lower tear duct had not opened. It was a very minor operation to get it opened up. Your puppy may have the tear ducts blocked, which your vet could flush out, or not opened like my dog, which would need a specialist.

She looks so sweet!

My Gracie, who was half miniature poodle, had no issues with her eyes but major tear stains her whole life. The aesthetics didn't bother me. She was a beauty no matter what. But they'd dry and accumulate into a hard mess that was painful for her, so we kept the hair there short and I did my best to clean the goop with warm water every few weeks. (I probably should have done it more often, but was warned by her vet to be careful not to irritate the area by frequently getting it wet or wiping excessively.)

What did the breeder say about it?

There are so many things that can cause it, from blocked tear ducts to allergies and even teething. It is certainly worth getting her eyes checked by your vet but in the meantime keeping the area clean and dry will help. Sophy is not a poodle, but she had quite bad staining as a pup. It went away completely as she got older.

No, not really normal for a spoo puppy. I would get into the vet ASAP to get her properly assessed and treated. Best wishes!

Thank you everyone for your thoughts/advice! We have an appointment scheduled for next week so hopefully we’ll find answers (or if it’s just allergies they’ll be gone by then). 😁

On a slightly different note, our pup is getting along great with our one year old sooo. Super thankful for that! 🙌 🥰
