    I will have to try the new Fromm grain free kinds. I am assuming that the 'free' bags are only at stores and probably not through Petflow?
    Not sure, i am not doing Petflow yet -- I like supporting the small local stores in our area and the price isn't much more. allergy testing is the greatest thing to do --takes always all the guessing and trying new foods. Have you tried using witch hazel like twice a week to clean his folds?

    The nearest store to us who carries Fromm is actually a vets office 45 minutes away. We are kind of out in the boonies which is why we do Petflow. I do use witch hazel about once a week because I was worried about it irritating him more but I will try it a couple times a week. I also use a q-tip to carefully put a little Gold Bond medicated baby powder there. Any other suggestions are happily welcomed! It is very frustrating to see these tear stains on his beautiful bullie face.

    My vet also suggests, when Banks stains were real dark (chicken allergy) to use apple cider viniger. I never used it as I went with witch hazel instead, but I have read a few people her do use it and rave about it
