There is a genetic predisposition toward tear staining. Being selective in Maltese
breeding stock can play a significant role in tear staining.
- Solution - When you are in the process of selecting a Maltese puppy,
make sure you view the parents too. If they have heavy tear stains, it is likely
that your puppy will too. If you already have a Maltese dog or Maltese puppy with eye stains
that are genetic, don't worrry. Just try some of these dog tear stain solutions.
Young Maltese puppies from 5 months to 8 months of age are in the process of getting
their adult teeth. This change in mouth structure can sometimes cause the tear ducts
to close and tear stains to appear.
- Solution - Give your Maltese puppy plenty of
dog toys to chew on. This will relieve the pressure on her tear ducts and lessen the
chance of tear staining.
