    Default That dreaded yeast problem

    My sweet Bella girl is having a terrible time trying to get rid of this yeast problem! Red/brown face wrinkles, around her pee pee area, her paws between her toes and just noticed cyst between 2 toes. She also has moist ears and watering eyes. This started about 2 months ago. At the time she was on a vet prescription food for stomach issues. She was previously on a good high protein food and never had this problem, but I'm afraid to put her back on that because it could have been the problem causing her to throw up. So 2 months ago I switched her to grain free Fromms. She gets zertec everyday, yogurt, coconut oil, apple cider vinager in her water. She drinks and eats out of stainless steel bowls. I clean and apply mal-e-ket everyday. It is not clearing up at all. The vet said he will need to put her on a steroid to clear it up if nothing else works. I really don't want to do that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

    Have you tried using miconizole (sp?) cream for the yeast?

    try to use water and vinegar solution to clean the affected areas. quit the ACV for the meantime because yeast thrive on sugar and ACV has sugar . hope she gets better soon!

    Which Fromm are you feeding.... if it has white potato it can be adding to the problem. My girl has horrible yeast due to grass/weed allergies. we feed Fromm Pork and Peas, which she does great with... still some yeast issue, but totally under control with this flavor.

    To clear brown face wrinkles, we've had success with hydrogen peroxide to clean, followed by drying and then applying desitin. It cleared in a couple days. To prevent, we switched to filtered (Brita) water.

    For recurring problems downtown, I bought bladder support supplements at petsmart. They have cranberry and pumpkin in them, give Nelly a couple with each meal (60 lbs) and it has kept her infection free.

    Prostora has helped our guy tremendously and he never gets yeast anymore. I order it online now, it's a probiotic and not cheap but works awesomely to me. I don't give it all the time but enough. He's on Earthborn Meadowfeast for food due to allergies to almost everything. Neo-predif powder is good for yeast too. Both products you need a script for though. I am so sorry about Bella. Also, can you try to bathe her once a week or 2 with a good shampoo? I like Etiderm a lot. The frequent bathing seems to help here too.
    I've been where you are and I'm so sorry to hear. I never got relief from the wipes, etc. Yeast didn't go away until I changed food and started probiotics. Good luck!
