Question: What are some home remedys for yeast infection in dogs?
My dog keeps getting yeast infections around her eyes and in her ears. I have taken her to the vet plenty of times. She is five years old, German Shepherd. It is costing me too much money. It cost me about 0 worth of medicine. I have taken her about four times. Once she has the medicine she is good for a couple months then it comes back again. What home remedies can I use to make it go away again and how can I make it stay away? It is a yeast infection. My aunt is a dog groomer, she stated some breeds will catch stuff and it is hard to get rid of.

YOGURT!
Give her a heaping containerful of PLAIN, unflavored yogurt daily. It must be plain because flavored yogurts tend to have diet sugars which are bad for dogs. Also, be sure your dog doesn’t get real sugar either because sugar promotes yeast growth.
Has your vet prescribed antibiotics in all your visits? Antibiotics promote yeast growth as well because it kills general bacteria, which includes healthy bacteria that keeps yeast growth under control.

    my dog used to have problems with yeast infections … i switched her to a salmon-based limited ingredient grain-free diet (natural balance) and i added raw organic apple cider vinegar to her morning kibble daily … after that she had no more problems for the rest of her life … you should google the benefits of organic apple cider vinegar …

    Change the dogs diet – either to a high quality no additive grain-free kibble or better still feed a raw diet.

    The yeast infection is a symptom of a deeper problem.

    Yo,

    Its not that difficult to make home made remedies for yeast infection. Try these techniques..

    Use Vitamin C: Vitamin C has antioxidant properties that can help fight bacterial and viral infections in your pet. Inserting a chewable Vitamin C tablet in your dog’s food is a beneficial natural home remedy for yeast infection in dogs. If your dog refuses the pill form, crush into powder and mix with his food.

    Topical Solution Made of Apple Cider Vinegar: One topical remedy to ease the discomfort of itching is a 50/50 mixture of warm water and apple cider vinegar. Spraying your pets affected areas with this solution will remove the itch. This solution is safe to use on their ears and their private areas.

    Topical Solution Made of Oatmeal: A paste of colloidal oatmeal and warm water can be made and applied with a soft cloth or cotton balls on inflamed areas of your pet. This will need to be reapplied every few hours for continued ease of discomfort.

    Epsom Soak for Your Pet’s Feet: If your pet’s feet or toes seem to be afflicted, a mixture of Epsom salts and warm water can be made to soak his feet in. Ensure that your pet is prevented from drinking this mixture. Allow your pet to soak his feet for approximately 10 minutes.

    I hope this helps! :)
