    How recently did you start the raw? If he has never been on raw before, he could be detoxing. I had no idea this happened until we started Tyson on raw. He started shedding, had tear stains, vomited etc.... I kept on with the raw, and learned by researching that his body was detoxing. His stool was also different, and had a coating type casing - another sign of detox. Not saying this is is, but definitely a possibility. I think we went through it for about 2 weeks or so, and now all is fine. No more shedding, stains, etc.

    Lastly, it "could" just always be an issue if the stains are being caused from environmental allergies :/

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    They went away on their own. It did take roughly 2 weeks or so, since you are still transitioning, you may notice it longer.
