Tear Stain Adventure Blog
After trying a few grain-free kibbles and before diving into the world of "Raw", Bass is now going to try Brothers Complete.
We have tried...Pioneer Naturals, Fromm, Natural Balance and TOTW...out of all of them, Pioneer Naturals seemed the best for tear stains, but they were still there.
Now, I realize that other factors could play into this horrible, dark, damp, ugly staining...environment, seasonal (we are in New England), the random pieces of popcorn that my girls conveniently leave on the floor after movie night...and I have considered doing the allergy testing to find out JUST EXACTLY WHAT IS CAUSING THIS!
Before I go that route, however, I want to exercise all means. So I am starting this blog, I sought advice from fellow EBN members, ordered some products online and am excited about our new "adventure" in tear stain stripping!
Oh and fyi, my boy is allergic to the home-made MOM/hydrogen peroxide/cornstarch concoction and I refuse to give him anything w/antibiotics (AKA Angel Eyes) unless it is mandatory, vet (and bullymom) approved and a last resort.
As of now SeaBass is on Fromm Pork and Peas, has a daily maintenance routine that involves destine, Kelapo coconut oil, ACV (Braggs of course, Vitamin E and other essentials. Tear stains are wiped throughout the day w/a soft cloth and we ONLY use filtered water.
On a side note, it may be time to clean out all the vents throughout the house (great project for Hubby and I could invest in one of those air purifiers...but he has run of the whole house and uses every room! I have not yet given Benadryl, I'm not sure why...I think because he's still a pup and quite active and I LOVE love his energy - especially when playing w/his Jolly Ball or Tire...
So that's about it. This blog, really is mostly just for myself as I enjoy writing and am "kinda" obsessed w/my dog <3
I am also aggravated that I didn't take more detailed notes when I first did a kibble switch... so even though I'm on my last kibble-quest...I decided to start! That's all. G'nite from Laurie and SeaBass
