TOTW and eye boogers?

Postby HappyPuppy » October 17th, 2010, 10:57 am

We are on our 2nd bag of TOTW. Just finished the high prarie and that was fine except for bad gas... So, we are now newly into a bag of pacific stream and I THINK I am seeing more goopy eye boogers. I like this food but am disappointed that we can only use 2 of the 4 flavors due to lamb and the gas it causes.... But I'm not sure if I like what seems to be new eye boogers on this flavor - anyone else notice this? (Ruby has no known allergies)

try adding Missing Link or Solid Gold Sea Meal to the food. That has made a big difference in eye boogers here.

Renee has been on TOTW Wetlands formula for over a year now and has not had any problems with eye boogers. She's never had an issue with runny eyes though (knock on wood!), itchy skin was her problem.

Inara's been on both the Fowl (appropriately named due to the FOUL gas it gave her!) and the High Prairie for several months now - 6 maybe? I haven't noticed any extra eye boogies.

Same here, both of mine eat it and don't have eye boogs :)
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure....

Nadia was on the TOTW Wetlands for a while, we just switched to whichever one is bison. Her eye boogies aren't as bad, though I could just be imagining it. I never thought the 2 were related until I saw this post so it could just be a coincidence :)

That's interesting, Sophie and Dozer are both on TOTW, Sophie is booger free and Dozer gets some really goopy pure white eye boogers. Gross!

I haven't noticed much of an eye boog difference, but Harlow's tear stains seem to be getting better since we switched to TOTW from Wellness Core. We are feeding the prairie as well. (what's crazy is that her gas is practically non-existant now, too!)

Just a tought here, but heavier eye secretions can be a sign of mild allergies (Jack gets eye boogers at the same tme as I get hay fever - it stops once the season is over). Pretty sure it could possibly relate to some ingredients in food, too. Adding Omega 3's (even in food that's fish based or contains added omega 3's) can help relieve mild eye allergies, if it's the case.
