Angel has the tear problems too although you can't always tell since the hair is brown under her eyes.

I know I have seen wipes for tear stains in Petsmart but I don't have any experience with them.

Chances are if they came with the tear stains, you probably won't be able to get it all off. My sister's cat is a white persian and her entire face has tear stains all over it... the groomers can't even remove them with their "professional" products.

baby wipes work pretty good, i just happen to have a baby, and i swear baby wipes get used on the dogs as much as on him, lol. they also come in handy for cleaning of muddy paws when theres no real need for a bath. :)

is there any particular type of baby wipes you guys use?
i personally like parents choice (the wal-mart brand) unscented. having tested all the brands under the sun on my sons bottom, i can tell you these are just as good, if not better than any name brand, lol. huggies i think makes an extra-gentle unscented thats pretty good too. just stay away from pampers, i forget exactly which ones of theirs i didn't like, but they were pretty expensive and the wipes were really thin and would rip easily. might not matter if your just using them for tear stains but if your like me you'll find a million other uses for them too, lol.

bobo also goes mad crazy for anything paper.....soooo
is it safe to eat?...lol!
i wouldn't freak out if they get a little nibble, since most baby products claim to be non toxic, but don't let bobo make a meal ok of them lol.
also, i was just reading my box of parents choice wipes to see if they actually say "non-toxic" and it doesn't, but they are hypoallergenic...

I don't know if it's "normal" or not, but I can always tell when my Char-Char gets sleepy by the tear stains. Normally the stains are minimal, but when he's tired they get dark, like circles under his eyes. :)
