Are your dog's tear stains driving you crazy? Chances are, he doesn't even realize that they are there.
But, tear stains do tarnish your pup's handsome appearance. Finding a tear stain remover that is not only effective, but safe for your pooch is very important.
Petpost! dog tear stain remover and ear cleaning products are made with naturally derived ingredients and no harsh chemicals.
If the grooming products that you choose are made with harsh chemicals, dyes or fragrances, they will do more harm than good.
When selecting tear stain removers and other products that will be used on your dog’s face, this is especially important to keep in mind.
Most pet owners believe that tear stains only occur on the face. Actually, those reddish-brown stains can also occur around the muzzle area and between your pup’s toes.
Usually, it's the tear stains on the facial area that really drive dog owners crazy.
Some products like the Petpost! tear stain remover combo can help with this problem, and that's what I'm testing today.
Usually breeds with white or light colored fur are most commonly affected by tear staining. Of course, it’s easier to see tear stains on light colored fur as well.
Tear stains can occur for a number of reasons.

Petpost! Dog Tear Stain Remover and Ear Cleaner Review
Most tear stain removing products are in liquid form. Sometimes, you'll also find cleansing wipes.
But, it's rare to find tear stain removing treats, like these from Petpost!
As you will see in my video review, both of our dogs enjoy eating these treats.
They are cheese flavored, and our dogs really seem to enjoy them.
Our Labrador, Saddie, will usually eat just about anything. Our Beagle, Molly, is quite picky, so I was happy that she liked these treats.
They're soft, making them ideal for senior dogs or pet's with dental issues.
These dog treats are made with cranberry extract, Vitamin C and other immune boosting ingredients. They are also formulated with eyebright herb, Oregon grape root, marshmallow root and lutein powder.
Tylosin is an antibiotic that is commonly added to many over-the-counter tear stain removers.
It has NOT been approved by the FDA for this use in dogs and cats, but it has been approved for farm animals in helping to treat bacterial infections.
Petpost! dog tear stain remover treats DO NOT include Tylosin.
Ingredients: Cranberry Extract, Oregon Grape Root, Vitamin C, Eyebright Herb Extract, Marshmallow Root, Linolenic Acid Omega 3, Lutein, and Linoleic Acid Omega 6, Rice Bran, Cane Molasses, Tapioca Starch, Lecithin, Rice Flour, Purified Water, Cheese Flavor, Safflower Oil, Glycerin, Chicken Flavor, Calcium Propionate, Sorbic Acid, Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin E
These treats are made in the USA in human-grade facilities and come with a 100% money-back guarantee.
Unfortunately, the company states that it will take 6-8 weeks of daily feeding to see the effectiveness of these treats.
You can purchase a bag of these treats for $28.47 on Amazon right now.
There are 90 treats in a bag. Dogs weighing up to 15 pounds only need 1 treat per day.
So, if you have a small breed dog, one bag will last you for 3 months.
Dog Tear Stain Remover Solution & Wipes
If you're looking to get rid of tear stains faster, you can try Petpost! dog tear stain remover liquid or wipes.
I prefer the wipes because they are much more convenient. Both products are made with naturally derived ingredients and come in recyclable packaging.
All you have to do is apply the liquid to the under-eye area. There is no need to rinse.
Ingredients: Water, Disodium Coco-Glucoside Citrate, Juniperus Comunis (Juniper) Fruit Oil, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Glycerin, Coconut Oil, Benzoalkonium Chloride (an Eye-Safe Preservative)
Petpost! Dog Tear Stain Remover is made with a juniper berry and coconut-based formula that is chemical-free.
It contains no antibiotics, bleach, parabens, MEA or DEA, phosphates, alcohol or sulfates.
As I mentioned, I prefer to use wipes because they are easier and much more convenient.
You can purchase an 8-ounce bottle of the tear stain remover solution for $18.97 on Amazon at the time of this review.
You can also get a container with 100 pre-soaked wipes for $16.12.
Dog Ear Cleaner and Wipes
As with the Petpost! dog tear stain remover, I prefer the ear cleaning wipes.
As you can see in my video review at the top of this article, they are very easy to use.
Our dogs do not mind having their ears cleaned with these wipes at all.
This ear cleaning solution is made with aloe and coconut to soothe any irritation in the ears.
It is formulated with naturally derived plant-based ingredients.
The bottle features the same easy application nozzle as seen with the tear stain remover.
It has a soft fragrance that isn't overpowering.
The wipes are quick and convenient to use, and the solution works really well too.
Petpost! dog ear cleaner removes ear wax, dirt, debris, and buildup in the ears that houses bacteria and can cause infection and irritation.
And, it does all of this without the use of harsh chemicals or irritating artificial ingredients.
