    Default Yeast concern

    Good Afternoon,
    I feel bad that I seem to only post when something is going on with my baby...
    We recently changed his food from taste of the wild salmon to Acana duck and barlett pear, and now ive noticed his nose rope getting red. We initially switched his food because he had a red spot on his paw that is loosing hair so i thought maybe it was an allergy. I am not sure if is this food weve been on it for about 2 1/2 - 3 weeks.

    I haven't tried Acana duck but I did transition Murray from TOTW puppy when he suddenly got sick of it to blue wildnerness duck, he loved it but the tear stains got worse. I'm thinking duck might be the common denominator! I have him on Fromm pork and peas which he loves, the tear stains have been less but are not all the way gone so we may try either beef frittata or lamb and lentil next. Good luck and let us know how you make out!

    Monty is on his second bag of Acana Duck and Pear and so far so good. But I have recently noticed a slight odor and I can't pin point where it is coming from. I had his anal glands checked and all OK there so I am not sure what is going on. I am going to give him a bath tomorrow and see if that solves it. Everything seems to be good so could it be the food?

    Bass did not do well on that food…I loved all I read about it, but it was a no-go here. Big, dark tear stains. It's the Duck. I tried another kibble that was duck and same issue. Try Fromm Beef Frittata when you're ready to do a transitional switch.

    Agreed -- that looks like a hotspot... keep it dry and clean -- use witch hazel or get Vetricyn 'hot spot' spray (works great). Hotspots are usually due to weaken immune system which is from allergies -- could be food or environmental (grass, weeds, dust, etc)

    It has been there for about two weeks maybe more. The one on his paw is the worst one but he has some little ones on his other paw and under his chest. They seem to come out where he has natural brown spots. I have tried triple antibiotic ointment, hot spot cream from petsmart, cortisone and the last thing I tried was some organic spray I bought at the farmers market. It doesn't seem to itch and there's no oozing from it. I do catch him once in a while licking it, but we didn't succeed with the soft cone so I just left it alone.

    btw - Izzy is also on Fromm Beef Fritatta and we both loved it. She does really well, no tear stain or yeast problems.
