I am having a real problem with Scoobys tearing. He is teething, but its so bad. I tried the apple cider in his water but he would not drink it. I have asked around and researched but only seem to find bad things like “angel eyes”
He is still on kibble as I am still waiting for his diet plan from Bev but I hate to keep bothering her as she has had so much on her plate.
It was not like this when I got him from the breeder. So I would appreciate any cleaning and keeping dry and fixing this tips, Please.

its probably the food. if you can get some optrex eyedrops i found that helped with honey – the ones for tired/dry eyes not for contact lense wears 🙂October 31, 2009 at 11:34 am #87672
I would suggest you go and read Suz posts on staining and read my reply.
IMO it’s not rocket science to feed a dog fresh food all these diets were never around when dogs were healthy and I was younger ;D, there is never the right vits and mins in balls in a bag anyway just get her onto fresh food there is loads on this board about food that will help with both her tears and her teething and give the pup a bone

So would you get zinc and vitamin c from change in diet or in vitamin form? Thanks Suz I will get some optrex for him. He is such a furry boy hard to keep clean and brushed as it hurts him 🙁October 31, 2009 at 8:57 pm #87674
Get him on a better diet first then see how his eyes are as for grooming hurting it only hurts if he has knots or you are using the wrong gear

yup grooming doesnt hurt – just got to do it regular, get into a routine – what you using to groom him with?November 2, 2009 at 7:46 pm #87676
Around his eyes a flea comb . And damping it down with water. But even a couple of times a day it still gets stuck together. Could I do this a better way?November 2, 2009 at 7:58 pm #87677
a flea comb will hurt a long coated breed. you need agreyhound comb thats fine for around faces, finer end, its sticking cos his face is tearing – sort the tears his face wil be much easier to keep clean.November 2, 2009 at 8:29 pm #87678
If you are cleaning his face twice a day I think you need to get his tear ducts checked by a vet,also you need to check he has not got a second row of lashes, sounds to me he has a problem or a severe allergy to something he’s being fed
