Pomeranian dogs consistently have problems with teary excretions that cause crust and dark spots to form under their eyes. These tear stains can be removed by regular cleaning and by providing an antibiotic called Tylan powder. Tylan powder affects the immune system and inhibits the secretion of protein, which lessens your Pomeranian's tearing and tear stains.
Things You'll Need
- Cotton swabs
- Milk of magnesia
- Tylan powder
Clean your Pomeranian's eyes regularly with cotton swabs and warm water only. Gently use the cotton swabs to remove any access dirt and tear buildup.
Create a solution of equal parts milk of magnesia and peroxide. Add a teaspoon of cornstarch to create a paste. Apply this solution to the tear stains and let it sit overnight. Rinse in the morning. Use this solution nightly for three nights to remove existing stains.
Visit your veterinarian and inquire about the benefits of Tylan powder to prevent future tear stains. The veterinarian provides a prescription if she agrees that the powder may help your pet's eyes.
Follow the instructions to give your dog the Tylan powder. It is typically administered by sprinkling some onto your dog's food, which is an easy way to ensure it gets the right dosage.
