How to Get Rid of Tear Stains on Persian Cats

Persian Cat free of tear stains

If you're the owner of a Persian cat, you're probably well aware of the struggle to keep their fur clean and free of tear stains. While those big, beautiful eyes make Persian cats so special, they can also be a source of frustration when it comes to keeping them looking their best.

But why do Persian cats have such bad tear stains in the first place? Well, there are a few reasons. For one, they have shorter noses than other cats, which causes their tears to constantly run down their face instead of evaporating as they do in other cats. Secondly, they tend to have narrower tear ducts, which also doesn't help the situation. 

If you are searching for some good advice on getting rid of tear stains on Persian cats. No worries! I have got you covered. Let's get started!

Why Do Persian Cats Get Tear Stains?

Tear stains, also medically termed “Epiphora,” is a condition that affects mostly Persian and Himalayan cats, causing them to have watery eyes. This can be caused by several things, including allergies, infection, and blockages. Treatment will vary depending on the underlying cause but may include medications, surgery, or other therapies.

Another notable reason Persian cats get more tear stains than other cats is that they have more fur around their eyes, absorbing tears and becoming stains. So it is definitely their fur as well that contributes to their tear stains.

How to Choose the Best Products for Tear Stains?

To choose the best product to get rid of tear stains, you first need to identify the root cause of this Epiphora (tear staining) condition. Once you have identified the main reason, you can take suitable actions to avoid them. 

One of the most prominent causes of tear stains is any sort of fungal or bacterial infection. These microorganisms cause irritation and inflammation, leading to excessive tearing and staining. Therefore, you need to choose specifically those products with antimicrobial properties that work precisely on the microbes and kill them to prevent tear stains. 

PawPurity Tear Stain Remover Kits are formulated with 100% natural ingredients to fight eye infections caused by dampness and microbial-caused inflammations. The range includes various products like wipes, stain remover powder, and shampoos for cats and dogs to help with the problem of epiphora. 

Of course, you must follow the product instructions and use this treatment solution for 7-10 days to notice results. The plus point of these products is that they are organic and do not irritate your little furry friend’s eyes. 


Always check out ingredients and formulations when choosing any product for your pets, especially for their eyes, as they are very sensitive and delicate.
