Does Anyone have any opinions on these products, which you like better, which one you think works better?  I carry Eye Envy in my shop but only have had a few customers buy it.  Most of them didn't follow through on using it, so their dogs look the same as they always did.  I'm real curious to know if the angel eyes works.  Thanks for any feedback

I have seen a lot of my clients have great results with Angel Eyes. It seems easier for people to just put in on their dogs' food, opposed to doing a step by step procedure once a day or whatever. Most of the dogs' that are given Angel Eyes definitely appear to have less tear staining. I think the main ingredient in Angel Eyes is beef liver. I think diet is the key to get rid of the staining. I would also recommend maybe a change in food, instead of feeding the same crap food (like Beneful or something similar).

Beef liver is simply the "carrier".  Its smells enticing to get the dogs or cats to eat it readily.  The active ingredient I believe is a very low dose of tetracycline.  So if the dog stays on a low dose of antibiotic, it will still tear but the tears wont cause staining at all.

I dont know which works better.  But I sell Eye Envy pretty regularly.  I dont carry angel eyes, we figured it was easier to find.  We have sold about 4 starter kits a month for the past 16 months.  We only sell starter kits by the way.

I have a few breeder friends who use Angel eyes and love it! Any time I see it used it works...

Angel Eyes works great for my dog! I've been using it for a while now. The tear stains come back immediately when I stop use though.

Hi, all. Let me start with a disclaimer: I am pals with the owners of Eye Envy and I groom Chaz, the Blenheim Cav on their label.
I wonder when Angel Eyes is going to be forced to change their ingredients. An argument can be made that they are practicing Veterinary medicine without a license and compounding drugs without a Pharmacist license. I also wonder where the heck they are getting all that antibiotic. China? Mexico?  I think if clients realized they were constantly dosing their pets with antibiotics they'd think twice about it.
All that being said I don't recommend either product.

I have carried Eye Envy for the last 3 years.  The starter kits.  I always sell about 18 a year.  I have clients that purchase the powder directly from Eye Envy because I only carry the kits.  The clients that use it regularly love it and it works great.  
I have heard nothing but complaints from my clients about Angel Eyes.
(That could be because they see the Eye Envy and haven't tried it but have tried Angel Eyes.)
Hope this helps.  My boxer doesn't need either product. LOL!!!!

Judy - can I ask why you don't recommend Eye Envy?  Just wondering!

As soon as I explain to people about the antibiotic in Angel Eyes, they usually don't even consider using it.  I don't carry it, although I've heard others say it really does work.  I wouldn't want to use it on any of my pets on a regular basis, so I don't recommend it to others.  I've sold some Eye Envy kits, but I wasn't overly impressed with it either.  It lightened up the staining, but didn't get rid of it completely.  Changing the diet works.  One of my customers changed her maltese to a raw diet and her eye staining cleared right up.  Her whole face was red when she was on a certain high end dog food.  I'm so glad she made the switch.

Because I don't want to bother with retail and the couple of times I've mentioned it clients want me to order it for them. I always warn that tearing could be caused by blocked tear ducts or bad teeth or food allergies and after those have been ruled out there's a lot of products out there but I've heard that switching the pets drinking water from tap to distilled water is the easiest thing to try first.

I use Angels Eyes for my Shih Tzu and my Maltese and have recommended the product to numerous customers and friends with amazing results. My vet even recommends Angels Eyes to his clients. I do not believe that a veterinarian would be advising clients to use a product if it would harm our dogs in any way.

Exactly Judy - Why would someone feed their dogs an antibiotic for tear stains (even if it does work).  I agree with the distilled water, and another great thing to add to their food is cider vinegar, if you can get them to ingest it ~ and of course, switching to raw diet would eliminate the tear stains and the bad teeth.
