Brown under the eyes

by Rochelle
(Belton Texas)

My Pyrenees (Malachi Tiberius) continues to have brown wetness under his eyes that I cannot wash off. Could it be from allergies or what? And is there something I can use to get it off that won't hurt if it gets into his eyes?

All cosmetic
by: Ed A from NJ

What your seeing is fairly common. When your dogs eyes tear it discolors the natural bacteria on the dogs skin and you get a red or brown staining in the fur. It is harmless but unsightly on your dogs pretty face. The best product (and safest) is a cleansing pad called true blue. Wipe the eyes daily and in time they will vanish. It takes time and it is a daily exercise if you wish to keep them clean. I also found bottled water tends to reduce the mess. Most dogs have a bit of this problem but it shows up best on white face dogs. Good luck

Get your dog to a vet ASAP.

It could be anything. We cannot diagnose online.

Thank you All Cosmetics I appreciate the comment it is very unsightly, I have seen this in other Pyrenees (my dogs parents) but had no clue. So thank you again.

Tearing
by: Donna

I've never had this on my Pyr's faces. I've fed them raw which may help, too.

Here is some good information on tearing:
