    Default Staining

    SO I have had Lamby on Orijen since she was a puppy. not until recently has she started getting tear staining and stainging around her mouth. I have no clue what or why it is happening. Before she had no problems and was white and white can be. She did go into heat a week ago. Would a heat cycle cause this? or should I try another food?

    Hi! I'm sorry..I'm not very versed on this but hold on and the right people will find you. In the meantime you might try a search under tear stains..maybe you'll find some info.

    Not sure about the heat since my baby is spayed. Also not sure about the staining since we've never had that issue. But I do know that Orijen although it is an awesome food, a lot of times it has too high of a protein content for bullies.

    It isn't good for their kidneys.

    We have feed Bubbles Origen since the first day. Her Kidney function is great, if your bullie has plenty fresh water and no known kidney problems orijen if the best. The tear stains could be yeast? Does she have increased tearing because of an eye problem? Signs of an ear infection? Any different treats?

    I dont think high protien would be a problem unless there was already a kidney problem?

    Sorry have to disagree with you, Orijen is a great food. Unless you have a dog with kidney problems the protein content is perfect.

    Bea was on Origen her first year and she didn't have a solid poop once. Not once. And she was grossly overweight too. For Bea it wasn't the right food.

    Any number of things could be causing the new tear stains. Seasonal allergies would be my first guess. But I wouldn't rule out the heat. Many women get acne and other skin issues "that time of the month" so I would imagine it could be the same for a dog in heat. Keep it clean and dry as possible. There are a ton of threads with suggestions on treatments/remedies. I have decided I'm going to try the witch hazel idea on HRH's very minor tear stains. Just from reading another thread recently about the stains where it was suggested. As for the food. There are many really good brands and many varied needs for our bullies. No one food seems to be perfect for every bully.

    actually sarah had some tear stains on one eye last month and she never has them. i just put some powdered lotrimin on a q-tip and put it in her fold. she was good in like a week of doing that. actually orijen is excellent food but it maybe to much for a non active bully as they can get overweight. it is more for active dogs. but some bullies are ok some not. high protein food is not for all dogs. thats why they have acana as it is lower protein. good luck.

    Thank you everyone! I will try some of the remidies, but I think I will be going back to the raw diet and see if that helps.
