new food, no more stains!

So many dogs on this forum get tear stains, and Sophie was no exception.Hers were terrible! I used probiotics and Angeleyes and nothing seemed to help. I did some research and switched her food to Acana Grasslands, and after 2 months, no more stains. Maybe there is one ingredient in a particular food or treat that they are mildly allergic to and it causes watery eyes. I don't know but I am thrilled to have solved Sophies problem without having to use drugs.

Sophie looks great! How bad was the staining before you switched. Do you have a comparison pic?

I do a round of Angel Eyes when it gets really bad because it's the only thing that works for her. She really likes her current food but maybe I should try something new.

I may have to try it out. My boys are use to eating lamb. Found a useful link on the food: http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-fo...od-grain-free/

That is the brand McGees breeder recommended but we can't find it anywhere near us. Glad to hear you found something that works!

I found it online at a bunch of places, with free shipping if you buy over 50 dollars worth from one place.

Chewy.com has free shipping over $49. I used to do a search and enter a promo code to get a percentage off but I've been out of luck the last two times I ordered --- seems most of the codes out there have been used the maximum number of times. :-(

Can't find before pics, but it may be she looked so bad I didn,t take any! I do order on line and it is not cheap. It is lamb based with fish, eggs and duck. She loves it!
