Tearing & staining question
Hello. I am new to this forum and I am in search of some direction regarding my little Havanese tear staining situation. Boomer will be 1 year at the end of June. He is an adorable, happy, loving little black & white puppy. We have had Boomer since he was 12 weeks and received him from a very reputable breeder. Boomer and his other litter mates had major tearing as little pups so e breeder switched the diet, she thought the lamb was causing it. Since we have had Boomer we have had him on a quality kibble grain free diet and have added a probiotic to his diet as well. My husband and I are adversely against using Angel Eyes or any of those other products that use an antibiotic. The tearing seems to be improving however recently the tearing seemed to pick up again. The staining seems to be picking up again, although it never went away completely. We also use bottled water versus tap. I just started giving him Merrick's lamb lung for treats. We try to be judicious in the treats her receives and keep it simple. I a, wondering if the lamb lung treats are causing the increase in tearing?
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!
