It changes the PH of the tears which is one thing that can cause the staining. Worked for Dawn when she was a puppy and had tear staining.
Changing his diet made a HUGE change in Riggs' tear stains. They completely went away when I got him on to good food. We've been a little lax about the supplements lately and they are back again.

I came across this thread today and realized Harlow definitely had a frito odor about her, so we are going to try the peroxide/vinegar concoction on her feet, and also around her eyes. Hopefully that will help get rid of them.

Since there are so many things going on with her, I'd have a vet check her out before adding new things into her life (supplements, new foods, etc). One symptom is one thing, but to have multiple things going on...I'd have her seen by a vet. I'm guessing there is an underlying allergy/cause that we're all just guessing at. Since she does have skin allergies, as you mentioned...
I also would recommend a second opinion...is there another vet in the practice that you can see?
