Question: Is yogurt really good for chronic yeast infection in ears?
I read this somewhere but now I can’t find anything about it and I don’t know how much or how often to feed it or if it really IS a good thing to be feeding my cat. She’s had ongoing yeast infections since I adopted her and I wanted to see if there was anything cheaper than the vet since I’ll be dealing with this the rest of her life.
Ohhhhhh thanks Elaine!! That’ll help anyway!! I’ve been buying drops at the vet each couple months so that will at least save me money!!

    No, not in the ears. The yogurt/yeast infection only works with humans (women, and it’s what you put in AFTER you douche down there to get the good bacteria going again).

    For cats with yeast infections in the ears you need to change the acidity of the environment to stop the yeast growth. It’s easiest done with a kleenex wadded over your finger, dipped in 50/50 water/vinegar and swabed out every other day. The yogurt won’t do a thing.
