How can I remove the discoloration around my white dog’s eyes and mouth?
Reddish or brownish discoloration around a white dog’s eyes and nose is quite common and normal. It’s caused by porphyrinsdpigments found naturally in dogs’ tears and saliva, as well as in other body fluids.
Unfortunately, these stains are hard to remove. There are several grooming products available to whiten pet fur; they may help somewhat. You also can ask your pup’s groomer what he uses to keep fur white. Bathing your dog’s face regularly may help as well. Most likely none of these options will remove the stains completely; they’re simply part of having a beautiful white dog.
