Solving an Unsightly Problem
Lynda Winkowski, president of Angels’ Eyes, discusses how the company has earned its place as the top provider of tear stain remedies.
How common are tear stain problems in pets? Are there any breeds that are particularly prone to tear stains? It seems to be more common than we know. It is, of course, more prevalent on a white or light colored dog or cat, but it happens to every breed.
What inspired you to develop a remedy for pets’ tear stains? In 2002, I realized that there was a problem in eliminating tear stains on these beautiful white dogs. So, after much research and trying so many different topical products that didn’t do much, I realized that the tear stains were coming from the inside after speaking to many veterinarians and breeders. By this time, I had found something that did actually help to eliminate the tear stains from the inside out and we made it palatable. Once everything was ready, we introduced Angels’ Eyes in 2005 and we are still going stronger than ever.
How does Angels’ Eyes work to remedy tear stains? What makes this different than other products on the market? Angels’ Eyes is a special, all-natural, enhanced anti-tear stain formula specifically developed for both dogs and cats to help unsightly tear stains from the inside out. The active ingredients in Angels’ Eyes are a proprietary blend composed of natural antioxidants and help support the normal inflammatory response.
Our product has often been imitated but never duplicated. We are proud to be the brand name in tear stain solutions. All of our tear stain remedies carry the NASC seal. The requirements are tough, but the bottom line is that it is a rigorous, independent audit of our facilities from the beginning to the end, which helps show we are committed and meet the highest standards of quality in the industry.
What products are included in the Angels’ Eyes lineup? How do these product complement each other? Our product line consists of Angels’ Eyes Natural, Angels’ Eyes Plus, Gentle Tear Stain Wipes and Solution, Article Blue Shampoo, Heavenly Coat, Soft Paws, Nose Glow, and our starter kits. All of our products help give our pets a beautiful stain-free, shiny coat.
What are the newest additions to the Angels’ Eyes product family? What are the key features of these products? We just recently added to the Angels’ Eyes product along with our new slogan, “We got the Solution,” to our new Angels’ Eyes Gentle Tear Stain Solution. We also have added and are now selling a 200 count of our Angels’ Eyes Gentle Tear Stain Wipes.
What does the future hold for Angels’ Eyes? We are always exploring new products. There will be more soon to come.
