Angel Eyes stopped working

by Salley
(Rockwood MI)

I have had 5 y/o Emee for the past 2.5 years. She has been on "Angels Eyes" with good results until the past couple months. I thought at first the "Angels Eyes" had passed the expiration date and was no longer effective. However, that was not the case, but I did order a new supply. I do not see any improvement. She still has the red stain around the eyes, whiskers, & even on her feet especially when wet. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions on what else to try.

Angel eyes NEW
by: Anonymous

The new formula does not have the ingredient in it that the original had- I believe it is an antibiotic- tyrosine
I hate the new formula. My white dogs never had the ugly tear staining. I only used the original 2-3 x a week. Loved it. The new Angel eyes does not work. I even tried it daily
I'm disgusted.
They should offer the original & New formula & let it be the owners decision. I used the original for 8 yrs with no problem

Angel eyes stopped working

I have been giving my Maltese Angel Eyes for many years since he had severe staining around his eyes.
I began researching if the product changed because it is no longer working.
Bring the old version of Angel Eyes back. My Maltese has never had any reactions to the old version. He is almost 10 years old.

Want something that is effective in eliminating the staining...

Maltese tear stains
by: Anonymous

I have 2 Maltese, they are 8 and 7. Had them on Angel eyes off and on since they were puppies. Usually once a year or every two years and only for about two- three months at a time.... Worked great... this new stuff does not work at all.... It is a big waste of money and my Maltese are not pure white anymore. I wish they would start manufacturing again....

Angels Eyes doesn't work without Tylosin
by: Cynthia

I have had my white Havanese on Angels Eyes periodically for the last seven years. I would use it for 4-6 weeks (either powder or the solid form) and then she was fine with no red staining for about three months. I now have a recurrent problem as I can no longer get the product with Tylosin. I tried other products with no results. I really don't know what to do. She has red staining around her eyes, her mouth, and her feet, even in the areas under her arms. I had searched Google to try to find a product which contains Tylosin with no luck. I see that there is a Tylosin powder but I have concerns about using that, plus many say dogs don't like it. Any suggestions from anyone?

Dental Concerns
by: Anonymous

I too am concerned about the new formula. at the urging of my groomer, I stopped using Angel Eyes. As a result, my 7 year old Maltese who never had dental problems, starting breaking teeth and had to have multiple extractions. So back on Angel Eyes! Now I really don't know what to do. Guess it's time to visit the vet. Any other suggestions!
Thanks!!!

Angel Eyes
by: Vicky & Jonah

Thou I have never used Angel Eyes bc I myself did not like what I read on Tylosin I feel that the appropriate thing to do is not judge.

As with any medication once on the market possibly they found that the effect out weighed the benefit once the drug was marketed.

Without trial & error weather it's for our pets or ourselves many drugs would not b available in this day & age.

I have noticed w/Jonah here in Arizona when our weather gets hot his eyes water more then in our nice months. I started documenting it about 2 yrs ago since a tendency to forget.

Except for baths I occasionally use 10 to 1 peroxide mix but tend to keep the hair dry & feathered in the corner of his eyes & approx daily keep it combed w/flea comb since teeth r closer together.

I have read on numerous sites that once they stopped using Angel Eyes it took awhile for normality to resume.

I hope this will b the case for your Coton & if not that a sub is discovered for the pet owners who have found that Tylosin preformed for them.

Thanks for your input on information I do feel the more we learn it's helps us b better pet owners no matter our age.

I am FURIOUS
by: Anonymous

I also had my dog on Angel Eyes for years. He is a very healthy 7- year old pure white Maltese. After very careful consideration,research, and a trip to the vet to specifically discuss adding Tylosin to his diet, I made the decision to do it.

People can debate all they want about the "ethics" of using the Tylosin to control tear staing, as long as they don't force tgeir opinions on me. I am a responsible pet owner and did my homework.

If yo don't want to give Tylosin to your dog, then DON'T.

2- weeks ago I ran out of Angel Eyes and bought some at Petco. No where did it indicate on the label that they deleted the sole ingredient that stops the staining. The Tylosin.

In 2- weeks my dog has gone from a clear, shiney white coat with zero staining, to a brown stained mess. I was scared that something was wrong and took him to tge vet. You know what the vet said?!!!

"Angel Eyes has removed the Tylosin from their product, so all that your dog is getting is USELESS and stain CAUSING chicken liver powder"!! He went so far as to say it's criminal.

Angel Eyes Formula Modification
by: Anonymous

It doesn't work any longer because it used to have an antibiotic in it. The antibiotic was removed recently because of concerns that dogs would build up an immunity to antibiotics and they would not work when needed for a serious infection.

I used it for 2 years on my Peek. It worked great. This past two months it is not working at all. I spoke wih one of the Petco associates about Angel eyes and learned about the antibiotic and we checked the label - it had been removed. Now, it is really over priced as it does nothing for the watering eyes.

I am going to discuss with my vet, because if the eyes are not kept clean in the folds, an infection can grow and ultimately blind these little guys.

About Angel Eyes
by: Mena

I also tried Angel Eyes with one of mine and it never really worked.I took him to the vet and she gave me something similar but more concentrated and stronger.I saw the results and a couple of days after his eyes were dry but now this product it has stopped working too.I am going to take him to the vet again because I am sure there has to be something they can give him to stop the tears.I suggest you just take yours to the vet too,because we don't know if maybe this is causing irritation and is maybe painful or uncomfortable for them.

tear stains
by: Vicky & Jonah (Az)

I use my old saline solution bottles from my contacts & mix 1 part peroxide & 10 parts water & then use this with a wash cloth to clean the fur UNDER the eyes. It helps squirt a little as needed. Also a flea comb to comb out does a good job when the fur is wet to get the gunk since the teeth r close together. It will help with the stains.

Red stains
by: Anonymous

Red stains are cause by red beets in the dog food. I use only a clean cotton pad soaked in warm water for each eye to soften and remove the stain and eye crust and a separate wet pad to wash around Tuffy's mouth.I also keep the hair around his eyes and mouth short, that helps.

another good food
by: Debra

Another good food to try is Stella and Chewy's freeze-dried raw patties. My little guy doesn't have tear stains or puppy breath.

Thank you for the recommendations
by: Kathy from SC

I have 3 cotons ... only one of them has significant tear staining. I had researched Angel Eyes and saw that it contained an antibiotic so I was concerned about using it long term. I'm glad that I didn't do that.

Good to know what to try next. The dog with the most tear staining does have allergies. I will try different foods. Thank you so much!

tear stains
by: Angie

Sophie had terrible tear stains when we got her, and Angel Eyes cleared them up. However, the vet explained to us that the product contains an antibiotic and therefore should not be used long term. At the vet's recommendation, we changed Sophie's diet to the fish and potato formula by Verus. This worked. We eventually found out that she had lots of food allergies, and she continues on a limited, no poultry diet. Try the Verus food or Blue Buffalo limited ingredient salmon an potato. It will take a little while, but you will definitely see improvement. And it is so much better for them than the Angel Eyes.
