Light coloured dogs in particular can have unsightly “tear-staining” and over the years, owners and breeders have tried many different products in a bid to reduce it.
If your dog suffers from tear staining, you might want to take part in a new trial being run by manufacturer, Dog Rocks.
The company sells a special product (rocks!) which can reduce burn marks on your lawn from dog urine – but it says some owners have told them their dog’s tear stains have improved after using Dog Rocks.
So it has launched a trial to find out if this is actually the case and is looking for tear stained dogs to take part.
Carina Evans from Dog Rocks, says: “We now have strong reason to believe Dog Rocks also alleviate tear stains but we now need solid evidence so we are asking pet parents with dogs to take part in our trial.”
Owners taking part in the trial will need to email a picture of their pet suffering from tear stain and provide a little information about the dog’s breed, diet and lifestyle.
If you would like to take part, you need to email Dog Rocks ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or you can call them on 01628 822243.
