Filtered Water and Beard Staining

I'm still dealing with beard staining on Willow. I wash her face twice per day with a product that is supposed to help with staining. She eats a quality grain-free kibble. She also takes I-Stain by Thomas Labs. I believe the staining is better but it's still there. I know some of you give only filtered water. I'm wondering if a Brita filter would be sufficient. Are you buying filtered water of do you use the Brita? Or is it purified water rather than filtered water?

We have a Le Bleu water cooler at the house and mostly Leo and Rex drink that from s water bottle. I do use Brita filtered tap water in the ceramic fountain for my big dogs and both Leo and Rex will drink from it sometimes. Neither has any beard staining issues at this time.

Emmie drinks distilled water and is fed a raw diet. I also try to wipe her face after meals with a damp washcloth or paper towel. She doesn't have beard stains with this regimen.

i feed my dog purina after a vet suggested a hypo allergic food, which did not good. She looks like she has dandruff after grooming and shaving at the vets, i assume dry skin. She is black around the face so no staining, use tap water.

Thanks everyone. Willow has about the same regime as you, Ricky, except she is currently drinking tap water. I think I'll try the Britta.

I have never heard of Honest Kitchen so I just looked it up on Amazon. It sounds interest though I don't know what I would add for Willow as her prior owners told me she is allergic to chicken.

Leo eats Honest Kitchen Grain Free turkey and fish varieties. They seem to work for him. I tried one of the no meat varieties but my DH has a hard time with the raw meat. I am still working on that. The varieties with meat are so finely minced you can't really tell what the individual ingredients are.
