I rescued a dog right off of the road who had been badly abused and was pregnant. I took her to the 24 hour emergency hospital and checked her in for three days old workups. She was fine. I brought her home and 10 days later I delivered 11 puppies. I tied and cut their cords- two were not breathing and it took me over 20 minutes to get them breathing. ALL are fine now- except we had an awful summer and even with air conditioning and a floor fan three of the six puppies still unadopted have developed yeast. Thankfully only one in her ears - the others between their toes. I use cornstarch baby powder twice a day between their toes and then I spray on Bitter Apple so they won't lick. Please be careful of Tea Tree Oil as it can be toxic to dogs if they lick too much of it. I am still fighting the yeast but it is coming on winter and I am hoping that the cold weather will also help as long as I put their boots on them before they go outside.
I have them ALL on wheat free diets. They are on chicken and fish based foods. Their treats are home made and gluten free (with either bananas, pumpkin, blueberries, or peanuts - all organic) or carrots, or blueberries, or organic baby food chicken or sweet potatoes.
What type of probiotics can one use with dogs?
Thank you, Susan
