Small Dog Issues: Tear Stains Reduced with Organic Foods

No More Tear Stains!
It seems I could go on and on about the benefits of organic food. One of the advantages that I found early on was the end of Oliver's tear staining. If you own a toy-sized dog, you may be familiar with this staining that occurs from oozing, tiny tear ducts in these pint-sized pups. 

The stain is caused by residues from their diet that collect and discolor the light fur beneath their eyes. Oliver had tear stains when we adopted him. I was told to use over the counter products that were expensive and questionable in terms of his health. I am ever the skeptic.

When we switched to Organix, Oliver's tear stains disappeared within weeks of beginning his new diet. With a little more investigation, I learned that the colors, preservatives and other additives in traditional pet foods is often at the root of this staining. Oliver is now stain free, and has been since our switch to Organix.

Not only does he look and feel better, but we don't have to spend money on products that we have concerns about, just to help get rid of these stains.

This is great information! I am so thankful for your continued advise. I am going to go organic for our little long haired blond Chihuahua mix who does have tear stains. I excited that there is something we can do for this.
Thanks so much!
