    Default Home Cooking is working swell!

    I've been giving Tate homecooked food for the past 10 days and have noticed a considerable reduction in his tear stains. His face would usually be drippy and wet, creating those rusty colored stains in his deep wrinkles below the eyes and around the eyes, and nowadays things are getting much clearer and he's not so "drippy" any more. I will post pictures soon. I still have some time to go with it but just wanted to let @Zoey1974 and @desertskybulldogs know, since these two are the ones who gave me the heads up on such a diet.



    I've been feeding him a mixture of ground beef, potatoes, carrots, green beans, black beans, and pasta shells. I will probably make some kind of roast in the slow cooker next. Oh, I'm also giving him filtered water so this is likely playing a role in the tear stains too.

    Good job, Mamma! I might have to start that with Ruggles. Since we switched to NVI LID Turkey his tear stains have darkened a lot. Ruggles is allergic to chicken, beef, pork, and lamb so I'd have to use ground turkey!

    I've been cooking for Oliver "Tidus' hamburger dinner" since a week ago Wednesday. Haven't really noticed a difference in his tear stains, goopy eyes, or face smell. But our filter on our faucet needs to be changed also so he hasn't been getting filtered water for a couple of weeks now. I'm beginning to believe that his issues are not food but environmental and changing him to home cooked is not going to help. I'm going to continue to try it for a month though and go get the dang filters for the faucet and then see if there are any changes.

    Thats great, that he's doing so well on it. billy has been on home cooked since he came home to us we're on our 3rd attempt of introducing kibble the last two times he got bad bad hives....this time it's day 4 and so far so good. Had he been an older dog past puppy phase I would have kept him home cooked no problem but I worry about him getting all the right bits and minerals needed for good puppy growth.

    I was looking at Tate's face this morning before work and was quite pleased. Like I mentioned before, his face is clearing up. The rusty-red stains in his wrinkles have faded to a lighter beigy color. I know i said i'd take a pic and I will later when I get home. I did also change his water to "filtered spring water" so i'm certain this is contributing to the overall results as well.

    My question is, how long do you do this homecooking? if i revert back to his dog food, i'd be afraid of the stains coming back. So i'm wondering, those who do homecook, are you continuing indefinitely? @desertskybulldogs, @Zoey1974
