Ask Our Vet: Tear stains

Q: Do you have any suggestions on what is causing my dog to have prominent tear stains? Is it food related?

    Is your salmon dry kibble too big for a 5 lb. dog?

  2. Hi Joe, this kibble is a good size for a toy/small breed. You might also want to try our Small & Medium breed formula to see which your dog prefers.
