Four Paws Crystal Eye® Tear Stain Remover Overview:
Tear stain removers are often a quick fix that is affordable. However, tear stain removers only address existing stains that are visible to the human eye. Tear stain removers do not address the causes of tear stains that can result from internal factors whereas a pet health supplement for tear stains can help address tear stains from inside-out.
Tear stain removers are basically a grooming aid. That wipe away surface stains that can re-develop once tears accumulate on hair near the eye area. This can be a few days, maybe a week. Either way, tear stains are unsightly and can be annoying if the issue goes unresolved, even though you are using a tear stain product.

Tear stain removers can wipe away tear stains so your dogs eye area looks clean and you can start fresh to see if a tear stain supplement is actually helping.
