    Hi..Does anyone know of a good home remedy for tear stain removal? Seems like I heard somewhere once thatr boric acid or cornstarch worked well. Does anyone know anything about this or how specifically to use it? I would also like to know of any home solutions which work well on bulldog and pug wrinkles. What does everyone else do or use? Any info would be appreciated.

    I wouldn't dare try to use boric acid near my dog's eyes. That just can't be safe. I would also be really careful with cornstartch, since it's gritty. I've heard that apple cider vinegar works, but I have a black dog so I've never needed to try it. Hopefully someone with some experiance can make a suggestion.

    Sorry I wouldn't really know because I don't have to wipe Toki's tear unless his getting his bath. Are the tears obviously red?
