|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||3%|
I came acros your website after searching Yeast infections in dogs trying to find out what's wrong with my yorkie poo, Zoe. She's 4 months old now, but has been scratching since I got her on Oct. 7. She was 8 weeks old.
We (her Vet) have tried prescription shampoo that has not helped, then on to Revolution (for mites), that has not helped. Now she has (I am sure) a yeast infection in her ears, but I believe it has been a yeast infection all along. She started scratching her butt at 8 weeks, and now it's all over because she has lost her beautiful black fur on her legs and now spreading to her back. Her fur looks dull and her eye lids don't look as sharp as they use to be. There is no signs on her skin that shows any redness or black marks, but just flaky. Her ears smell which makes me believe she has a yeast infection.
I have changed her food 3 times now since I got her. She is on the Dick Van Patten Formula, Potato and Duck. She seemed to have gotten worse since I switched her to that, from (Wellness) and before that (Puppy Chow was what she was on when I got her) She has only been on Duck and Potato for 2 weeks, so I will wait it out. I just tried the 1 tsp of white vinegar 1 tsp of water in her ears, and I also put 1 tsp of vinegar and 2 tsp of yogurt in her food this morning. I will try this for awhile to see if there are any changes. When should I notice a difference? Also, can I use that formula and spray it on her skin when she is attacking? Please help, thanks.
