Apple Cider Vinegar
A teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
can be added to your Maltese dog's drinking water to control new
tear stains. Since vinegar is not the most pleasant tasting, it may take
a while for your Maltese to warm up to the idea of actually
drinking it. To make the change easier, start with a little less
and gradually increase the amount of vinegar in her water. Apple
cider vinegar works by changing the pH of the drinking water which makes
it a hostile
environment for yeast and bacteria.
This is a herbal topical treatment

eyes. It's all natural and contains Eyebright, Dandelion, and

have excessive tearing or are allergic to
things in their environment.
