    What is acv?

    I sprinkle just a dash of Angel EYes - beef - on Punk's food and she has no tear stains. She is 3 now and I have done this since she was about 1. I do not give any more than a dash. She is on Royal Canin for bulldogs. I have tried other food and all the girls just pick out the RC. I have a Corgi and a small mixed breed.

    salmon oil is just put right on the food and goes by weight. their should be a weight chart on the bottle. sarah is 47 pounds and gets 2 pumps. i do it every morning in her breakfast. you can just do a little squirt to test and see how they react

    Apple cider vinegar, we use the unfiltered/unpasturized kind that was suggested by others on here. It's very good for the immune system and skin issues

    Hello,

    With every puppy should be an instruction manual about how to care for a bulldog.
    This is a great place to learn. Sadly sometimes it is after the fact. So, no need to berate learning even at a slow pace.

    First off, bulldogs are dog/animals. As humans we tend to give them "human" qualities and characteristics and concern about food.

    Most if not all bulldogs are sensitive to many foods. The more simple the better. Most if not all are sensitive to chicken and grain. Check your food to see if it contains beets? This causes staining as well.

    What each dog, what your dog is allergic too will take time. Start off as basic as possible and only change one thing at a time. (quote from the movie Contact "small moves Ellie" ).

    If you change too many things all at once or too many things at once you will never know exactly what it was that caused or helped.

    As for tear stains:
    daily cleaning with plain jane baby wipes, dry good, use gold bond or desetin. NOT baking soda corn starch !
    For infections associated with these fold areas, again desetin cream or for severe cases use Duoxo pads.

    Too many bad reactions associated with medications such as angel eyes or others that adjust the PH level. This could cause OTHER problems in kidney or bladder.

    So go slow, check ingredients and consider allergy testing for extreme cases. Then you will know for sure !

    Good Day~

    Hope this wasn't posted already... Larry has issues with tear stains but it isn't due to his diet. His eye water because he gets eye lashes that grow towards this eyes, making his eyes water which in turn leaves that fold moist. Every time we take him to the vet she plucks problem ones. The vet did mention cyro to freeze the roots of problem eye lashes. Anyway, just an idea that it might not alway be food/treat/allergy related

    Hey Bacon! Merry Christmas.

    Neither really. He did get a couple of pimples, but otherwise, his mouth area was just really really red. In fact, his face is STILL slightly red, like all the time. I'm at my witts end I tell ya! I moved him to NVI's Salmon, but no real change on the redness front. His stains are holding steady.

    I notice his nose runs when we go for walks, to the park, etc. I'm beginning to think he is just allergic to life.

    In addition to the food, the only thing I feed him are quado bones and pearly whites.

    Could be allergies, when we let Bacon out in the back yard he comes in all snotty nosed.

    Sarge had bad tear stains when we lived down south, but when we moved to Pennsylvania
    they cleared up and I changed his food to blue wilderness. Now his stains are all most gone.
