How to Treat Tear Staining in Dogs and Cats

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

Dog’s eyes will naturally tear a little bit, especially when they are growing puppies with rapidly changing faces and sore teeth. For light or white coloured dogs this can lead to visible staining around the eyes and muzzle. If excessive tearing is causing a sticky build up that is irritating your dog’s face, or you simply want to remove the stains for cosmetic reasons, there are several options available.

It is very important to know that not all of these options are advisable.

Option one is to add a low grade anti biotic in your dog’s food. This will work cosmetically for a time but… the bacteria will most likely build up a tolerance to the anti biotic and also it is very important to let the tears come out naturally anyway. If the staining is a reddy brown – everything is a-ok and your dog’s eyes are healthy. However if here is a green or yellow colour a trip to the vet is needed. Checking the colour of the stains is an easy way of monitoring your pets health and I would personally much rather keep the anti-biotics for when they are genuinely necessary. Therefore we do not sell these products and do not recommend them.

Option two is to let the tears come out and then treat them externally. This is a much better idea for the reasons outlined above, but you still need to be careful choosing a product. Some products on the market contain bleaches and chemicals such as peroxide, we do not sell them either. Some people have success with apple cider vinegar but as this has a laxative effect I wouldn’t recommend it!

The products available on our website are natural and contain NO antibiotics, bleaches, peroxides, or anything else nasty that we wouldn’t be happy to recommend. For white coated dogs, Eye Envy is our bestselling product. It removes stains naturally and very effectively with a two part topical powder and liquid treatment that doesn’t sting! It is suitable for both dogs and cats.

Another all natural, safe and effective option is the Happytails Eyemunity and Eye Pad program. The Eyemunity is a safe, natural food supplement to help boost your dog’s immune system while the Eye Pads contain gentle ingredients like collodial silver to remove the stains externally. For dogs that just have a wee bit of staining or a grubby muzzle, the Eye Pads on their own are a great way to clean the stains off without harming your precious pet.

The Perfect T-Shirt For a Dublin Dog

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

I wonder did the designer of this awesome dog t-shirt have Dublin in mind when they printed our (un)official favorite adjective on the back? :)

Maybe they were referring to the deadly gas emissions in dogs we are sadly all too familiar with, or the little dog syndrome where they bark and act fierce to make up for their short stature?

All I know is, I think this t-shirt is DEADLY! 😀

Dog Doing Pranks

If this doesn’t make you laugh, then you should see a doctor. This dog knows what he wants and how to get it. Just remember that next time you choose a dog food that he does like!

Christmas shipping has ceased

Christmas cheer!

Yesterday I wandered to the post office with a pink bag full of online orders, the last ones to reach people before Christmas. Walking there and back was quite a daunting experience since the girls made me carry the gifts in a monstrous pink bag!! There were quite a few comments but just walked as fast as I could.

Any other online orders that have been made since yesterday will not reach you until after Christmas unfortunately. However, it is possible to order items online and collect them here at the boutique for emergency pet requests. It is important that you mention it at the checkout so we know not to send it off by post.

Our Christmas opening times are as follows;

20th: 10am – 6pm
21st: Midday – 6pm
22nd: 10am – 6pm
23rd: 10am – 6pm
24th: 10am – 3pm
25th: Dúnta (closed) ((eating pie ‘om nom nom nom’))
26th: Dúnta (closed) ((recovering from copious amounts of pie))
27th: 11am – 6pm (Back to usual Saturday hours with no pie)
28th: Midday – 6pm

29th – Closing for restock, reopening on the 2nd of January ’09!!

2nd Jan: Back to usual hours with a bright shiny new year!

Happy shopping!
