|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||25%|
I have a solution that worked for my dog. After reading a majority of the post re: yeast infection remedies when my dog was dealing with a bad case of it, I decided to try some of the suggestions. Since mid October 2010, this is what I've been doing for Gigi to heal her. Brief history: Gigi (maltese) has been on Prednisone and antibiotics for most of her adult life (8 years old). She had scabs all over her body and was diagnosed with yeast infection from 2 vets, and stapf infection for another. After her last round of antibiotics, which cleaned everything up, but then within a month, she was right back in the same spot, I said no more prescription drugs---I knew this was an endless cycle. This is what I did and she is 97% better:
- nutrition is everything: NO GRAIN food with no by-products---you need to seek out great food. For some this is an issue b/c it cost more (vet bills are really expensive too). I'm using Instinct (raw diet meats) and Taste of the Wild. NO GRAIN and NO BY PRODUCTS is extremely important. Poor diet is the problem---to find the right food, you may need to seek out alternative vendors like pet stores that really understand this issue or online. - add probiotics/enzymes to each meal (i got from her vet---the supply will last a good year )
- UDOs Wholesome food diet for Dogs (packed with healthy nutrition)--- and the supply last a long time. - Add omega oils to meal (be mindful of the amount)
- PLAIN (no sugar) yogurt (really important not to get yogurt with sugars)---suggest: yogurt from health food store or stoneyfield. - MOST IMPORTANT part of healing the scabs and itchiness: I cleaned her scabs (she had all over her body, infection around her eyes---it was horrible) and infection with digestible Aloe Vera gel (Lilly of the Dessert), not the kind you buy at a drug store for topical use. Everyday until I started seeing results. - Another thing to consider that I did up front was give her a few of drops of Colloidal Silver --- please research more about this. - I did not test Apple Cider Vinegar -- however, I know it's great stuff for people. I truly hope this helps... I feel blessed to have come up with a solution that ACTUALLY had results.
