    Default Please I need help with Diesel

    So few days ago I posted about his back being full of sores. You guys told me it's allergies and I should change his food a little. I have been reading about and I thought it was the beef as he was on chicken before and he was fine. I switched him to beef when I got him because this is what all of mine where eating.
    Yesterday I was cleaning him and he had this nasty smell on him. His breath is getting worse and worse. Then I cleaned his paws and I saw it! All red and full of yeast!!! So my poor guy has an yeast infection. We are going to the vet tomorrow to get meds . I was up till 1am and was reading how to get rid of the yeast and baths with ACV etc. and I was trying to see what the heck causes it. And then it was like a light bulb!! I feed him beef and potatoes grain free food. It's not the beef , it's the potato!!!!!
    So I now I have to find him new food. I am trying to read all of the posts on here and internet and I am lost , also is so hard because my laptop just broke and I only have my phone right now. So with this said I need suggestions.
    Most of you say to go grain free. Is rice bad for them? I can not feed chicken as my boxer is allergic to it , so can I just do rice with turkey or other protein? To cut off the potato? But then rice is a carb as well which is not good for they yeast, am I correct? However he was on chicken and rice before and he was doing great ( according to the last owner) . She was feeding him eukanuba ( not a fan of it at all). Should I just put him on that till his skin gets better?
    I can not afford Fromm , any other suggestions what else I could get him? I am so lost and I feel so bad that I didn't cut that sooner!!!

    This is after I cleaned his paws with witch hazel

    That would be yeast....There are other foods you can try that may not be as expensive, Earthborn or Tast of the Wild might be a choice, they have grain free option.

    He doesn't in grass , he just goes potty in and comes back. He lays on the patio most of the time.


    I didn't think of ACV having sugar in it!! Thanks! So should I just use some white vinegar???

    Poor Diesel. Hopefully the vinegar will give him some relief. I know how miserable they get when they're itchy

    If he was doing well on the other food the previous owner had him on, then try a small bag of it and see how he does. It's not the best, but if it agrees with him, then that's the one to stay with.

    I'm not sure how much it is because they ALWAYS have specials but California Naturals Kangaroo and Lentil has worked miracles on my Truman's yeast problems! It might be worth a try!

    Hi you've already gotten great advice and suggestions. Fromm's is only one example of a grain free high quality food, others are Wellness, Orijen, Blue Buffalo, Go Natural, and Arcana. Look for a limited ingredient food that is grain free, potato free, and corn and filler free, and then choose a source of protein that he tolerates. Use the vinegar on his paws, and also as a final rinse after his bath. Do you add ACV to his drinking water? Also adding plain unsweetened yogurt to his kibble will give him probiotics which help fight allergy symptoms by boosting the immune system. I hope you find a food he tolerates, and he feels better soon.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    This is a great piece of advice, exactly what I would do.

    You could also try using Epsom salts to soak his paws in.
