I have a dog that has re occurring yeast. I have taken him to the vet twice and the medication clears it up but it comes back. I have since done some research and plan to change his diet and use tea tree shampoo, however, I feel he needs an oral medication. I have read that antibotics and steroids can actually cause the problem. Do you have any recommendations?

DERMA-IONX  has been helpful for  skin conditions involving yeast.    DERMA-IONX is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems  in  the  body that aid the  skin and helps with  assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements.   What sets it apart

from most homeopathics is that it is in an oligotherapeutic mineral base which has had a charge added to it.

   Initially  I would give a half dose of  DERMA-IONX on the breakfast and  supper food.  After there are signs of  improvement  you can give a whole dose once a day. Giving  PROBIOTICS  to aid  digestion and the immune system is important in crowding out the yeast in the body.  OMEGA 3,6,9  can reduce inflammation and help the skin and coat.  

  The water you give should be filtered if it contains chlorine.  Chlorine is not good for the intestinal flora.

Diet can also influence the skin. Sometimes the flavor even makes a difference. Does your dog prefer to spend time in warm or cool places? According to Chinese food therapy the protein should be chosen based upon thermal qualities. Has your dog's thyroid been checked?

  In addition I would shampoo with DEFENDEX shampoo  to soothe the skin.  You do not need to let it stand.  Please keep us updated so we can help guide you.
