We feed both our guys Fromm's Beef Frittata grain free and they're doing really well on it. Blossom has a little bit of tear stains, but not too bad, but I'll have to see if I can find Cranimals Gold here. Whereabouts are you located in Canada? I'm in Burlington Ontario.
    I'm in Vancouver - Cranimals is a local company so there are quite a few pet shops selling it. But I didn't know that and just bought it online from amazon!

    Bosco's on Fromm Pork and Peas and his tear stains were really bad - especially under the eye where the fur is white. This was $20 well spent!

    I just estimate it about 5-10% vinegar and rest is water, if you think it's still too strong just add more water . I highly recommend it too because it does work. Though i would love to try this Cranimals if only it's available here.

    I would be apprehensive to give anything internal that is supposed to change the color of the fluids secreted from the dogs eyes, just for a cosmetic change.
    There are more natural things you can do to completely stop the tear stains. Namely, changing the diet to something that doesn't promote them.
    Baxter has been on Farm Fresh foods (which is basically chicken or beef with veggies and healthy oils mixed together) and has never had a tear stain.
    Except the one time I switched him to iron-rich organ meats when we were trying "raw".
    I guess I would go this route before I would ever put more stuff in his body that has a strange effect like bleaching body fluids. But im skeptical, despite the ingredient list looking harmless.
