    Isn't that crazy? I keep trying to explain the concept of premium dog foods to her breeders, but ah well...

    Yah, I am seeing a huge difference in Tallulah . . . Amazing, isn't it? Even more amazing that people like the breeders won't see it when it's right there in front of them.

    I forget what she was on before. Yeah, they think so long as it's a 'name brand' then it's good enough.

    I just thought it was crazy. She still has some stains but absolutely no more eye watering. You realize better food is obviously better for them, but I didn't think it'd change this fast.

    Allergies are cumulative. So, if she is allergic to grass and corn and you remove the corn, the grass allergy may also "go away" bc the stress on the system is reduced. I'm guessing this may be what happened with the watery eyes, but I'm not an allergist- just a guess. Anyway, congrats on the improvement- she doesn't just look healthier, she looks happier.

    WOW. I thought she had really weird markings before. :eek: I didn't know staining got that bad.

    I think you need to take her back once all the stained hair has grown out and show them what a good food does. ;)

    OMG, Laur!

    Summer looks awesome! Her coat and her eyes in general look way healthier. You really should "politely" let her breeder see the difference good food has made.

    I have noticed that my dogs absolutely never get eye gunk. Not even a little. I always thought all dogs get it to some degree, before I started feeding really good food, and then Raw.

    They always act amazed at Rose when we take her back too. Though I think a lot of that is maturity and being spayed.

    I'd love to feed raw but don't currently have the means to do it. So she gets canned food plus kibble. Seems to be doing really well.

    I was thinking about sending a couple pictures and just briefly mentioning the eye gunk... ;)
