Not necessarily because I've seen organic in the grocery store and that's not the right kind, however the stuff with "the mother" still in it is organic. The type that has the benefits you cannot find in a grocery store, Wal-Mart, Target, etc it has to be a health food or vitamin store. On the front of it it will say with "the mother" or something along those lines. One good way to tell is if there is sediment at the bottom after it sets for a bit, if you have to shake it up it probably has "the mother" in it, if you don't that's not the right kind. I personally get Bragg brand which is one of the well known brands for it but there may be other brands that still have "the mother" in it.Is organic ACV okay? That is what I buy.
Yes, I've heard it's from unnecessary plant proteins too. Like if there's corn gluten meal in the food (ie: Royal Canin), it causes tear staining. Or rice gluten, or any of that sort.My white boy never had tear stains while on the original Canidae, once they changed their formula he started getting them and they didn't go away until I figured out he was allergic to gluten and switched to a gluten free food.
But then again most of those side effects are considered allergic reactions as well.Yes, I've heard it's from unnecessary plant proteins too. Like if there's corn gluten meal in the food (ie: Royal Canin), it causes tear staining. Or rice gluten, or any of that sort.
I find the unnecessary components of dog food often eek their way out of our dogs' bodies in some form or another. I think that's how the gluten finds its way out. Regular corn causes hot spots, loose stools, and shedding. Too many grains can cause excessive stools and flakey skin. Etc. etc.
Yup that is what I got!! Thanks for giving me some kind of idea of how much to give them. It cost me $5.39, but if it helps money well spent!
