Our bottles contain 30 gr. (1.05 oz) net and 120 gr. (4.23 oz) net. Just sprinkle Angels' Glow daily on regular food. After 3 months, reduce to 4 times a week. After 6 months, reduce further to twice a week.
• Puppies (up to 3 months): 1/8 tsp. daily • Dogs 8 to 12 lbs: 3/4 tsp. daily
• Dogs 2 to 5 lbs: 1/4 tsp. daily • Dogs 12 lbs & up: 1 tsp. daily
• Dogs 5 to 8 lbs: 1/2 tsp. daily
Each 30 gr. bottle contains approximately 108 dosages of 1/8 of a tsp, 54 dosages of ¼ of a tsp, 27 dosages of ½ a tsp., 18 dosages of ¾ tsp, or 13.5 dosages of 1 tsp.
Each 120 gr. bottle has approximately 432 dosages of 1/8 of a tsp, 216 dosages of ¼ of a tsp, 108 dosages of ½ a tsp, 72 dosages of ¾ tsp, or 54 dosages of 1 tsp.
As you keep trimming the stained areas, the newly grown coat will be totally clear. The growth pattern of your dog's coat will determine if it will be completely tearstains free anywhere from 15 to 40 days.
Angels' Glow is very palatable but in rare cases, dogs and cats may resent changes in their food and will not eat enough. If this happens, we suggest reducing the daily dosage to 1/16 of a teaspoon or even a tiny pinch. You can add Angels’ Glow to a small portion of Nutri-Cal, cottage cheese, Gerber Baby Food Stage 2 (any meat flavor), cooked ground beef or chicken, or your dog’s favorite treat. Give it once a day as a separate snack. Slightly increase the dosage every few days until you reach the prescribed amount according to your dog’s weight.
Angels' Glow is safe during pregnancy and for puppies over 6 weeks old.

Q. What’s the difference between ANGELS’ GLOW and all the other products on the market?

Q. How long does it take to see the results?

will not remove the stains that are already there, but will prevent new stains from developing. Each dog has a different hair growth pattern. Consequently, some dogs will have results after 15 days, while others may take up to 35 days or more. The pictures on our website have no touch ups. They are the actual result on each dog from a few of our customers.
Q. When do I reduce the dosage of Angels’ Glow from daily to 4 times a week?
A. After 3 months or when you see that your dog’s coat is evenly bright, not just around the eyes.
Q. Do I judge a dog by the amount of tear stains?
A. A seriously stained face does not indicate a poor-quality, nor poorly bred dog. It is not proof that the dog is neglected, mistreated or unhealthy. It just means the dog has more tears and less drainage than he needs for some reason.
Q. Which is the hereditary factor that causes tear staining?
A. A dog could inherit very small tear ducts or overly watery eyes, particularly as a response to various products. Definitely inherited are large eyes and short muzzles, which tend to allow more eye irritation and less drainage. There can be inherited or developmental structural defects that result in eye stains.
Q. Which is the hygiene factor that causes tear staining?
A. Hygiene is an obvious factor in tear-staining. Matter in the eye tends to collect at the inner corner. This works wonderfully to keep eyes clean of foreign particles. If the dog's eyes are exposed to dust, wind, grooming products, stray or ingrown hairs and other irritants, there will be more matter at the corners. This matter becomes an irritant and causes more tearing and therefore more staining.
Q. Which is the health factor that causes tear staining?
A. Most veterinary eye specialists believe the actual cause of tear staining is excess tearing. Simple health concerns are often the major cause of excess tearing. Some of these are natural such as when puppies cut their first teeth, and again when they cut their permanent teeth.
To make matters worse, at the same time, puppy hair is growing, just long enough to stick into their eyes and cause excessive tearing. Dogs of any age with teeth or gum problems are likely to have extra tears staining. Ear mites and ear infections, or any health problem - especially those in the head, neck, and chest areas - may also contribute to tears staining.
When the face hair is wet from excess tearing it is the breeding ground for bacteria and yeast. One of the most common yeast infections is Ptyrosporin or Red Yeast which causes a deep reddish-brown stain. Low grade bacterial infections in the tear ducts are also common and may cause excess tearing and staining.
Q. Does Angel's Glow contain Tetracycline?
A. Tetracycline is a broad spectrum antibiotic used to treat various conditions caused by susceptible bacteria. It is not for use in pregnant, nursing or growing animals. It may damage developing teeth and cause permanent discoloration. More common side effects may include: anemia, blood disorders, diarrhea, difficult or painful swallowing, dizziness, extreme allergic reactions, genital or anal sores or rash, hives, inflammation of large bowel, inflammation of the tongue, inflammation of the upper digestive tract, increased sensitivity to light, loss of appetite, nausea, rash, ringing in the ears, swelling due to fluid accumulation, vision disturbance and or vomiting. Less common or rare side effects may include: inflamed skin, inflammation of the penis, liver poisoning, muscle weakness, peeling, skin eruptions, throat sores and inflammation. Food and drug interactions can occur; it is especially important to check with your vet before administrating tetracycline.
Our active ingredient is a macrolide antibiotic considered as narrow-spectrum because it is active against only a few specific bacteria, therefore it will not develop imbalance or resistance in the animal’s immune system.
It is important to take the macrolide antibiotic exactly as directed to make sure the infection goes away completely, even if symptoms resolve sooner. Failing to take the macrolide for the entire period can cause the infection to return or can cause the bacteria to become resistant to the macrolide the next time it is taken. A macrolide antibiotic might cause falsely elevated values of AST and ALT just when using colormetric assay. It is important to tell your vet you are using Angels’ Glow. Macrolide antibiotics work best when a constant amount is maintained in the blood.
FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS ANGELS’ GLOW MUST BE USED DAILY AS DIRECTED.
