Holistic Dog food that is light in color.

Does there exist a brand of Holistic dog food that is not dark brown? Ratchet's mustache should be white but I think the food that I feed him makes it brownish looking.

Sandypaws uses a mixture of half buttermilk and half distilled water that she sprays on her hands and works into Tyler's beard. This removed the redness in his beard and prevents it from returning. You can search for the thread - Buttermilk gets the red out....

Thanks Pucks104. You took the words right out of my mouth. And yes, Cyber Chulo, it does work! Give it a try, but have patience as it does to work overnight. Good luck.

Just curious -- would this also work with powdered buttermilk? Maybe sprinkled on Gracie's food?

I do add a quarter teaspoon of powdered buttermilk to Leo's food. He had a bit of tear staining and once I got that under control I wanted to try to prevent it from returning. I figured the powdered buttermilk wouldn't hurt and might help. However, since Ratchet's beard has staining now you would probably get better results with the topical application until the staining is gone.

Thanks! I will have to try that. Gracie used to eat TOTW and her beard wasn't too bad, but I have since switched to Acana, and it has become much more stained.

If I mix up a 1/2 cup of buttermilk from the powder and water, how long might it stay fresh in the frig?

I never knew the answer to that, so I stuck with regular buttermilk. I did throw a lot of it away, but it wasn't very expensive, had an expiration date and it worked well, so I didn't mind. I also did not want to add anything to Tyler's food due to his sensitive stomach. Also, make sure you use distilled water and to regular tap water.

You can pour buttermilk in ice cube trays, store them in the freezer, and have a ready supply to add to water for your spray.

Hmmm. Thanks for the suggestion. I will definitely give it a try and report back.
