We often get questions about how to remove tear stains on Persian cats. With many years of experience in the pet industry and helping these gorgeous little furry members, we would love to share our information. Let us tell you first that teary eyes in cats and staining can be due to multiple causes from infections to allergies to yeast. So first, you need to identify the root cause of Epiphora (watery eyes) in your Persian cat and then decide on the remedy.

Primary Causes of Persian Cat Tear Stains

  1. Allergies & environment

Allergies are a common cause of watery eyes in cats. Your Persian could be allergic of something as simple as house dust, pollen, molds, fleas or its food. Allergies can cause the tears to become irritated and produce more mucus than usual. If your cat's tear stains are a result of allergies, you may reduce them by changing their diet or using antihistamines. Your veterinarian can make recommendations.

  1. Bacterial & Yeast Infection

If your cat's eyes are red and inflamed, they may have an infection, which typically causes watery eyes. A visit to your veterinarian may be necessary. Infections are often cured with prescribed antibacterial or antifungal medications.

  1. Tear duct blockage

Nasolacrimal duct obstruction may be due to various reasons, such as allergies or infections. When the tear ducts are blocked, tears cannot drain properly. The tears build up in the eye causing watering. In addition, bacteria and yeast may build up around the eyes in the moist areas and cause redness, which can be painful for your fragile little Persian's eyes.

Use Gentle Persian Cat Stain Remover Products

Cleaning around a Persian's eyes require a non-irritating cleanser. If you don't have any, use a damp cloth to wipe away the debris. While there are many products on the market. PawPurity Tear Stain Remover Kit for Cats is a great option for getting rid of tear stains on your Persian cat permanently. It's a 100% natural treatment that attacks the heart of the problem; not just a cover up. The kit includes a cleaning solution, lint-free non-irritating application pads and a powerful powder. The solution and powder have powerful plant- and mineral-based natural antibiotics and antifungals. Once the powder is applied, its natural microbe and yeast fighters continue to work while repelling new tears.

  • Start with cleaning the eye area with the Face Stain Remover Shampoo. It's an extremely gentle foaming cleanser that can be used daily to get rid of debris and eye boogers.
  • Then apply the stain remover solution with the help of an application pad.
  • Now, apply the tear stain remover powder onto the affected area with a gentle toothbrush or fingertip.

After 7-10 days of following these steps, your baby Persian's eyes will be back to their normal beauty. You may have to continue this process once a week as a maintenance program, but it works.

Read Labels!

There are plenty of products available commercially that will claim to help you in preventing and cleaning your Persian cat's tear stains, but be extra careful. Read the ingredients. Some contain lighteners with peroxide or other lighteners, which only makes the stains worse. We always recommend 100% organic and anti-chemical products. Thanks for reading!
