Tearstain Eye Vet
by Bel and the m & m & m girls

Hi I have recently taken my 3 m & m & m girls to the eye vet.It was very interesting to learn how my 3 Maltese differed...in relationship to tearstain and the formation of tearducts, hair folluciles, etc....No, I can't answer questions about individual Maltese.....each dog is different, and anyhow....Jay's site is not for this but the office visit to the eye vet was worth every penny...I understand each one of my Maltese and I understand their eyes now...I feel so much better about it all........
Bel, my question to you is did this eye vet not only help you to understand each of your babies eye conditions, but also give you individualized suggestions?? Perhaps it would be worth it if suggestions were provided. Did your regular vet reccommend this person to you? Thanks Carla
Yes, I have very big recommendations. Two of my three Maltese are from Champions....a well known breeder in the Chicagoland area.And yes, I have two vets....one here in Naples and one in the Chicagoland area.... And yes, both recommended me to talk to an eye doctor.And no, I cannot individualize any eye problems with Maltese.And as I explained earlier, Jay's site is not for this.... but I really learned a lot. I highly recommend it... And yes, each dog was diagnosed ndividually...Take care, Bel

Tearstain Eye Vet Thanks Bel, thats what I wanted to know. I will be taking Bailey and Natasha to the vet on Dec. 18th.. I had already asked his advice and he thought I should just leave it alone. No meds. Perhaps I will ask him for a recommendation to a pet eye dr. I realize that Jay's site is not for disscussing medical treatments, I just wanted to know how you went about finding the dr so that maybe I could look into it myself. Bailey's eyes seem to be getting worse. They are glassey lately and the staining is really bad (more than usual) I've tried all the suggested things here (cornstarch mixture, etc.) So I think I will try as you did to take the next logical step. Thanks a bunch. Carla
