Angels' Eyes Tear Stain Eliminator for Dogs and Cats -- Doolittler Vet Blog Issues Caution


The pet supplement Angels' Eyes Tear-Stain Eliminator for Dogs and Cats has spent 847 days in the top 100 best sellers in Amazon's Pet Supplies category. We have featured this pet beauty product in a prior post--basically, to eliminate your pet's tear stains "from the inside out", sprinkle some into your pet's food.

All good? Not according to Dr. Patricia Khuly at vet blog Doolitter, who argues that the underlying cause of the staining is being ignored: "Never mind that tears run down faces because eyes are misshapen. Never mind that the presence of excessive lacrimation is evidence of disease".

If you rely on this product to keep your cat or dog snowy white around the eyes and mouth, do your pet a favor and read what Dr Khuly has to say:

  • Never mind that this product's active ingredient is a macrolide antibiotic called tylosin.
  • Never mind that clearing up tear stains in this way means you've got to offer your dogs a daily dose of antbiotic for the rest of his natural life.
  • Never mind that Angel Eyes is illegal in Europe and other places where antibiotics are not readily allowed in products like this.
  • Never mind that while the rest of the world is looking for ways to curb bacterial resistance to antibiotics, Angel Eyes is promoting it...just so your dog can look "pretty" in the face of disease.

Its not just europe where Angels Eyes is illegal- it is illegal everywhere. Even in the USA where firms like Amazon are happy to sell it even though the antibiotic tylosin has NEVER been given the ok from the FDA for dog and cats- it is allowed for livestock (exclusively)!!!!
