I just recently tried a 50/50 mixture of Apple Cider Vinegar and water to help with my 9 month old Weimaraner, Brody, to help what I beleive is a yeast infection. He has all the common symptoms, rash, very oily coat, and a horrible smell. I sprayed him down and brushed the mixture into his fur. The smell has gone away instantly, and oddly he doesnt smell like vinegar. I also gave him 1/2 a cup of plain yogurt, and he ate it right up. I hope this helps, if not we will be seeing the vet.
ACV and Yogurt, White Vinegar and Distilled Water
I want to thank Ted, Claudia, Judy, Susan and Anna for your advise. I started our five year old English Bulldog, Brutus, on ACV and plain yogurt once a day. I'm also using white vinegar and distilled water to clean the affected areas on his skin. I am so happy and proud to say that the results are amaizing. In less than a week the yeast is almost all gone. I checked him last night and the redness is all gone. He's not itching and the faul smell is gone too. The only reason I know he has a yeast problem is because the dermatologist scraped his neck, legs, paws and armpits and he was full of yeast. Brutus has been taking antibiotics, but the yeast comes back as soon as he finishes the meds. That's aside from taking his allergy shots once a week. Brutus has had skin allergies since he was a few months old. I just cannot believe it worked so fast. I will continue the ACV and yogurt and will keep you posted. Thanks a million!!!
