goopy eyes

i know we have had this discussion before but i am still not sure what to do. django has the gross redish goopy eyes, i keep them clean but sometimes there are so runny that a hard crust forms on his face and it starts to smell. i keep it clean by combing all the gunk out, he hates it, his little nose area gets red, etc. i thought about starting up with the angel eyes again. don't know whats worse, the tylosin in angel eyes and clean or the hard smelly crust that develops under his eyes that need constant cleaning (which i don;t mind doing but can't get it as clean as the groomer)

have you tried eliminating wheat from django's diet? Jasper had them as a puppy and got it again when I switched to a food with wheat in it. the angel eyes sure does work though.

Food was the problem with Brady too. He started staining and getting goopy eyes when I changed his food. I changed it back, and no more problems.

Beamer also used to have the red tear staining down the front of his face. I user the angel eyes and it went away, but then came back after I stoped using it. Once I switched him from kibble to a raw diet it went away 100% and has not come back since.. (6 months ago)

he has a beef allergy so the angel eyes is a chicken liver base. he eats wellness chicken so his food is pretty clean, i'll check the treats, don't think they have wheat but need to check. maybe that's the problem. thanks for the tip. can't do raw diet, issue with me, kind of grosses me out.

Wellness Core is what Brady started staining on. I use Chicken Soup and he seems to do much better on that. I would start by trying to change the food and see if maybe that helps. Especially if you haven't tried that before.

The Wellness food itself may be good but it could also simply be that there is something in the food that doesn't agree with him. Every dog reacts differently to different foods. Possibly try something along the line of Evo, Orijen, Timberwolf etc. They all have non beef formulas

Lulu has the same problem. I just changed her to the Wellness Puppy. I'm hoping that works. I have been tempted to go back to Angel Eyes but I'm leary for the long term. My vet said that it could also make the dogs more anti-biotic resistant if taken for the long term.
So far I've really noticed a lot less tearing with the Wellness puppy.

i just checked his treats, wheat flour! he's been eating these since day one. anyone recommend a good soft treat? no beef. he LOVES these so it has to be even better than what he's eating now, and soft.

Hands down-- the best soft treat in the world is

Canz real meat treats--- comes in chicken and venison, venison, lamb, salmon.
they are little 1" X less than .16th" jerky squares that can be broken into tiny pieces for training--- the best price I have found is at sitstay.com. Wellness also makes a jerky treat but I think it costs more. I like these, they are not irradiated (I checked) and they are 95% meat.
