Pets’ Spark™ Beef Liver Overview:
Pets’ Spark™ Beef Liver appears to be discontinued by its manufacturer and limited supply is left for sale on third party retail websites. There is no telling how long supply will last and there is no information suggesting that this tear stain formula will be sold again in the future by its manufacture.
Pets Spark along with several other tear stain removers like Angels Eyes, Glow Groom and Angels Glow were issued warning letters because they were unapproved tear stain removers for dogs and cats that contained the medical antibiotic Tylosin as tartrate. Tylosin has not been approved for the treatment or condition known as tear stains in dogs or cats. Therefore, the FDA prohibits products that contain tylosin and market themselves as tear stain removers.
Do not use tear stain powders or supplements containing this harmful ingredient! The FDA issued a warning because this ingredient is harmful to dogs and cats, and can cause health issues. There are alternative options that are safer approaches that have not been issued warnings by the FDA. See some of these tear stain products on our review grid below.
It appears that Pets Spark was intended to address the underlying causes of gooey discharge and tear stains as a tear stain remover with tylosin. Pets' Spark Tear Stain Eliminator also helped weaken bacteria until it was incapable of redeveloping new bacteria. The manufacture claimed that this process did not affect the natural production of tears.
Pets Spark Beef Liver was not the only flavor this product came in. Pet owners could purchase the Chicken or Vegetarian formula as well. Each flavor was comprised on ingredients intended to improve the appearance of tear stains within weeks.
Before Pets Spark Beef Liver and its other flavors were discontinued, you could purchase one of the flavors for less than $50 online. This was affordable, but you should never substitute affordability for safety of your pet. There are other tear stain products on the market that really care about your dog and cats health. To see some of these affordable and tylosin-free tear stain supplements, see our review grid below.
