Dear Folks at Stella and Chewy's,
I am sure you hear this all the time, but your food literally saved my dog's life.
We have a small peek-a-poo, maltese, shitzu and other dog mix. When we got her at 8 weeks, Poppins was so tiny we could hold her with one hand. We fed her a good brand name dog food, and she grew just fine, but we noticed she had developed severe tear staining around her cute eyes. Her eyes are amazing, because the coloring around them is so different. One is black all around and the other has a little black, but mostly pink. Very unique and endearing. But with the severe tear staining, you could not even see it.
After a while, we began to notice that her beard and paws were getting reddish like the tear stains, and figured this was a systemic problem. A friend recommended a raw diet, but Poppins did not like cold, raw meat after having kibble all of her life. I even tried letting it come to room temp. and grinding it up, but nothing.
I looked around online and in stores, and someone recommended your food. I bought several small bags of different kinds, and lo and behold, she LOVED them all. The tear staining became less, she has never had it since.
We love it because there is no mess and it is so easy to use when traveling in our motor home. And I feel so good about giving it to her. I know she is thriving on it, and I really believe she would be very sick or worse if we hadn't switched when we did.
Thanks for creating the greatest dog food on the planet. We will never switch to anything else.
