Just 'Cause

As an aside, I'm not sure if it is all the food reading I've been doing, but I'm starting to agree that eye goobies are related to food.  This is the first time that I can remember having to edit eye goobies out of a picture of Coulee!  She very rarely has eye goobies, but lately it has become a constant issue.

Did you switch her yet? Sometimes they get weepy and mucusy eyes when their guts are adjusting to new stuff. I think it's because there's new protein types in there and the intestines are producing a ton of mucus and so all the mucous membranes kind of go nuts for a while.

I've switched, good grief, probably 20-30 dogs to raw over the years and they all run at both ends for a little while even though they are super happy and healthy. Then they adjust and blow coat and look incredible. I know you're switching to cooked, so you may not see the benefits or the effects as much, but she may do funny transition things too.

Joanna, I haven't switched her. I think the month on crappy food is just finally showing some impacts. We'll probably be cooking up our first batch of real food next weekend! I can't wait.
