Chihuahua’s eyes are one of the traits that make the breed the breed. They also include a lot of tearing. With fawn as well as white coated Chihuahuas, the tearing can also lead to staining. That orangy-red coloration is a pain in the butt to remove, especially for our dogs that enter the show ring. Angel Eyes is a product that is put into your dog’s food. I have tried it to no avail since they seem to sense the addition to their meal. I have tried many other products that don’t ever seem to truly work. Onto the internet researching I went. The results were quite interesting.
It all links back to the food! Every dog food we have used as been known to cause the staining. Go figure aye? Royal Canin, Eukanuba, Natural Balance, even Bil-Jac! Apparently, going with a grain-free food is the route to take. I have been putting out my feelers and I think I have narrowed it down to a few to choose from for our next dog food adventure. More to come soon!
