    I agree that probiotics help with tear stains but as far as using that product in particular.....? That kinda sounds like a sales pitch. There's tons of great probitic choices out there.

    @ddnene, I'm so done with the eye issues too. I do not want Tate to get surgery for all the obvious reasons so I'm hoping to get the tearing under control too. The vet did say it's more of a cosmetic issue in his case but she also rx'd him some eye ointment antibiotics b/c they were a little red and irritated looking.
    Thank you. In my opinion natural and fresh are the best. I use pills as well, but I don't think they have much live probiotics in those dry white pills....

    Your boys also eat homemade raw… which is better for them than dry kibble. I remember eating SO much sauerkraut in Germany, I'm sure that Walter would love it!!! Lol I'm not sure who paid for the study… but you have a valid point.

    I'm right there with you… I'm willing to try anything to get it under control.
