What attracted you to your flat-faced dog? Was it just that - their flat face? Or their personality? While adorable to behold, we have a responsibility to ensure our dog's flat faces are clean and dry.
Smoosh, flat faces can become raw, irritated and red down in the facial folds (some call them wrinkles) and the area from their eyes down to their mouth where tears can irritate the skin. Before you moisturize these areas with any product, you must clean and dry the wrinkled area on your dog.

White or lighter dogs are also often plagued with reddish, rusty looking tear stained areas. This is a multi-pronged issue and cannot be remedied by wiping their face off.

Some products can brighten the discolored hair, but it won't be 100% white, white, white. Tear-stain removing products cannot bleach the hair back on their own, unless they contain bleaching agents. That is just science (again with the science).
