Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is Angels' Eyes®?
A. Angels' Eyes is a product that may help eliminate unsightly tear stains. Tear stains are caused from an overflow of tears (epiphora). The reddish brown color in the stains is from Porphyrin pigments (iron/magnesium) in the stains.

Q. How does Angels' Eyes® work?
A. Angels’ Eyes® works to prevent tear staining by tying up circulating porphyrins. A porphyrin is a compound that reacts with light to produce a reddish brown stain to the medial canthus. The active ingredient in Angels' Eyes®, Tylosin as Tartrate, will prevent your dog from contracting Ptyrosporin (Red Yeast) and bacterial infections which causes excess tearing and staining. Tylosin binds with Porphyrin pigments and prevents them from binding with the animal’s hair.

Q. What are the ingredients in Angels' Eyes®?
A. Angels' Eyes is wheat and dye free, it's made of 100% pure beef liver, tylosin as tartrate. There are 3 formulas: Beef Liver, Chicken Liver and Sweet Potato.

Q. What's the difference between Angels' Eyes® and all the other products on the market?
A. All other products mask or have artificial food coloring, artificial food additives and preservatives, corn, wheat or soy which can cause the stains to reappear worse than before. Angels' Eyes® does not require rubbing or any other difficult maintenance. With Angels' Eyes® you will not need to use bleach, peroxide or any other topical product that may cause allergies and irritations. Many topical products do not list their ingredients.

Q. How long does it take to see the results?
A. Anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks. It depends on the growth of your dog’s or cat’s coat. Continue to trim off the stained coat and the new coat will grow clear of stains. For optimal results Angels' Eyes® must be used daily as suggested.

Q. What are the hereditary factors that cause tear staining?
A. A dog or cat could inherit very small tear ducts or overly watery eyes, particularly as a response to various products. Definitely inherited are large eyes and short muzzles, which tend to allow more eye irritation and less drainage. There can be inherited or developmental structural defects that result in eye stains.

Q. What are the hygiene factors that cause tear staining?
A. Hygiene is an obvious factor in tear-staining. Matter in the eye tends to collect at the inner corner. If the pet’s eyes are exposed to dust, wind, grooming products, stray or ingrown hairs and other irritants, there will be more matter at the corners. This matter becomes an irritant and causes more tearing and therefore more staining.

Q. What are the health factors that cause tear staining?
A. Simple health concerns are often the major cause of excess tearing. Some of these are natural such as puppies or kittens cutting their first teeth, and again when they cut their permanent teeth. Dogs or cats of any age with teeth or gum problems are likely to have extra tear staining. Ear mites and ear infections, or any health problem - especially those in the head, neck, and chest areas - may also contribute to tear staining. Allergies to certain dyes or ingredients in food could cause excessive tearing. When the facial hair is wet from excess tearing it is the breeding ground for bacteria and yeast. One of the most common yeast infections is Ptyrosporin or Red Yeast which causes a deep reddish-brown stain. Low grade bacterial infections in the tear ducts are also common and may cause excess tearing and staining.
